(Ottawa) Surgical waitlists can be dramatically cut if governments develop a strategy to scale up innovations already underway in the public health care system, says a new study released today.
Why Wait? Public Solutions to Cure Surgical Waitlists looks at groundbreaking projects in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Ontario that have significantly reduced wait times for procedures such as hip and knee replacements, cataract surgery and others.

public system, a new study says.
