Toronto Central LHIN Dialysis Patient Study (2014)

Client: Garrison Health

The CGC was asked to assist with mapping for a dialysis patient study within the Toronto Central Local Health Integration Network (LHIN).  A number of dialysis patient transportation service areas were digitized within the Toronto Central LHIN to determine where gaps and overlaps currently exist.   A demographic analysis was performed for each identified service area, as well as each gap to help determine whether the gap contained a significant population of potential future patients.

Each dialysis patient was mapped by postal code of residence and linked to their current health centre.  This was done to help determine if there are a significant number of patients within the TCLHIN that could switch clinics so they receive dialysis closer to home.  This could help ultimately save on transportation costs for each service provider.
