International Journal of Cardiology, 05/15/2012
Beauchesne LM et al. – Of a minimum number of 96,000 ACHD patients in Canada, only 21,879 were being regularly followed in 2007. At most sites waiting times for ACHD services were beyond Canadian recommended targets. In spite of universal health care access, published guidelines for ACHD patient structure and process measures of health care quality are not being met.
