Health: Service corridors between MRCs to reduce waiting times

The Abitibi-Témiscamingue Integrated Health and Social Services Center (CISSS-AT) is establishing service corridors between the different MRCs in the region to reduce waiting times for care.

The aim of the CISSS-AT is therefore to improve access to specialized care and services within prescribed deadlines throughout Abitibi-Témiscamingue.

If the patient’s condition requires it, the Service Request Dispatch Center (CRDS) could prioritize scheduling an appointment with a specialist at a facility near the user’s home.

However, if the patient’s condition permits, the appointment could be granted at a facility in a different MRC than the one where the patient resides.

The CISSS-AT emphasizes that the implementation of this procedure makes it possible to align with the Ministry of Health’s goals for the timely allocation of specialist appointments.
