Term: Location of Visits to Specialists

Glossary Definition

Last Updated: 2013-10-30


Information regarding where Regional Health Authority (RHA) residents went for ambulatory visits to specialists by the following categories:

  1. percent of visits in patient's RHA district,
  2. percent of visits elsewhere in patient's RHA,
  3. percent of visits to another RHA, and
  4. percent of visits to Winnipeg.
The location of ambulatory visits was calculated for two different fiscal years. Only ambulatory visits to specialists were counted, including all medical specialists, paediatricians, psychiatrists, obstetricians and gynecologists, and surgeons (defined by mdbloc codes other than 11). Only visits for Manitoba residents within Manitoba were counted; this may result in some possible under-counting of visits to RHA districts that border other provinces.
