Click for Full Details: www.csqi.on.caA website allows cancer patients, their families and health care providers in Ontario, Canada, to access the province's latest cancer information. The Cancer System Quality Index, the first such resource in North America, provides information such as wait times for surgery and radiation, prevention initiatives and quality of care.
The five areas the site covers are accessibility of services to patients, efficiency in the use of services, how cancer and cancer risk factors affect Ontario residents, treatment quality and the ability to understand and measure improvements.
The index helps the government effectively allocate meagre resources by highlighting areas of improvement. Doctors also will be able to use the index to give patients the latest comprehensive information.
