Comprehensive Health Status Report 2008

Arrow BulletHealth Services

Girl having eye testThis chapter touches on only a very few aspects of the health care system. The utilization of health services is not a good measure of health status: it is heavily influenced by the quantity and type of services provided.

In addition to the treatment of acute illness, the spectrum of Peel’s health services encompasses long-term care, chronic disease management, clinical prevention and public health. And, of course, every resident plays an important role by keeping themselves healthy and care for their own, and their loved ones’, minor ailments. Through all of its parts, the system aims to help people stay healthy, get better if sick, and manage disease and disability.

Topics covered within this chapter include:

  • Health care utilization, including consultations with various health care providers
  • Hospitalization rates
  • Adverse events associated with medical care and treatment
  • Emergency medical services
  • Use of home care services
