A new RCA survey is gathering fresh data on the impact of the pandemic on rehab capacity in the community.

The RCA first surveyed providers of publicly funded ambulatory and in-home rehabilitation in fall 2020 to gather data on rehab capacity during the first wave of the pandemic. The new, streamlined survey will capture data for waves two and three. It will also gather information on how providers are responding to the needs of patients who require rehabilitation services in the community following COVID-19, including patients with post COVID-19 condition.

The RCA will analyze and share the anonymized provincial and region-specific results with Ontario Health regional leads and planning tables to support ongoing pandemic and post-pandemic planning. The results will also be shared with RCA stakeholders and those who have responded to the survey. The analysis will be available this summer.
