The waiting game

"For the first time in this province's history, Ontarians can now find out how long they can expect to wait for key health services at hospitals. This site contains the most up-to-date information about wait times in Ontario, with a breakdown for five specific health services by individual hospitals that provide those services."

For those of us who live in Ontario, it's especially interesting to look at the "Wait Times in Your Area" -- you just type in your postal code and see the median wait time to get an MRI at nearby hospitals (as well as the mean and the 90th percentile). There are a few other goodies as well.

One section that caught my eye was "Myths About Wait Times". Whenever I see the word "myths" used like this (particularly in the dichotomy "myths and facts about X"), I have a kind of intellectually aggressive reaction, and I immediately look for flaws. They're usually very easy to find and this case is no exception, but I'll leave that to the gentle reader (whom I encourage to leave a comment).

This seems like like a great service. It might be a good idea for other provioncal health departments to see if they could obtain the right to use the application in their province.

I checked one procedure, and was amazed at the huge spread. Although a province-wide wait list would be impractical, wait times that run from three months to almost two years seem hard to understand.
