  • understanding existing processes of referral, waiting times and patient flow
  • understanding how existing resources are being used
  • finding gaps in the system where additional resources can make a difference, match resources to demand
  • improving access and patient flow in the Edmonton Zone
  • providing more timely patient care in the Edmonton Zone
