COVID-19: Get the latest updates or take a self-assessment.
People in Ontario are, on average, seeing overall improvements in many aspects of their health, and in the care they receive. They are living longer and are less likely to die before the age of 75. More people are having cancer surgery or general surgery within the recommended wait times. Rates of hospital-acquired C. difficile, a potentially life-threatening infection, continue to decline. Fewer children and youths are having their first care for a mental health condition occur in the emergency department. And more people are receiving palliative care in their home in their last days of life.
These examples show that improvement is possible, especially when there are focused and sustained efforts by many organizations in the health system to make progress on key indicators.
