UManitoba, Shared Health partner to help health care clinics review, improve care practices


The University of Manitoba and health care organization Shared Health have partnered to improve wait times and patient access to health care through the Access Improvement Model (AIM) program. Clinics that go through the AIM program take part in eight workshops and modules, as well as a mentored project, in order to review their care practices. The program examines everything from the experience of the patient making an appointment to their time in the examination room. “It’s really helped us to assess what we’re doing and why we’re doing things,” said Teri Greenwood, primary care manager for ACCESS Fort Garry.
