Waiting for Health Care in Canada: Problems and Prospects
A "waiting list" for health care is a list of patients awaiting a service such as surgery or an appointment with a cardiologist. But this doesn't tell us whether everyone who waits for a service is actually on a list, or how patients get on lists, or whether they all need to be there, or who manages the lists. It is also silent on whether physicians share lists so that patients get service through the shortest or fastest moving list.
