Project Description

MSSU researchers from three Maritime provinces compared the distribution and organization of treatments for total hip and knee arthroplasty and cardiac surgical procedures across different regions of the province. Evaluations were conducted on how patient outcomes vary within and across jurisdictions and as a function of travel times to the hospital, and also how cost and performance measures vary across hospitals offering these services within the province.
