STORY SUMMARY: Unnecessary hospitalizations due to chronic disease are reaching the tipping point of seriously harming this country's healthcare system and do not meet the needs of patients and their families, according to a report by the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI).
"Across Canada, patients end up seeking care in emergency departments to manage their chronic illnesses because more appropriate care isn't available in the community," says Maureen O'Neil, O.C., President of CFHI. "These patients are getting the wrong care in the wrong place."
