The Manitoba government is turning to the people for ideas on how to make the provincial health-care system better.
Consultations will seek input from citizens on making the system more effective and efficient.
“Right now, the costs of the health-care system are not sustainable and we want to hear from Manitobans about what we can do better,” said Health, Seniors and Active Living Minister Kelvin Goertzen.
“We are asking Manitobans for their ideas on how we can make the right choices to be more efficient, implement cost-effective new ideas and ensure quality care is available for many years to come.”
Surveys are being developed and administered by the province working with the George and Fay Yee Centre for Healthcare Innovation.
Feedback from the surveys will help inform the recommendations of the Health Care Sustainability and Innovation Review. An initial report is expected by the end of January 2017, with a final report set for the spring.
