Economic burden of low vision population in Ontario

Project ID: 2018-024/2019 0950 041 000
Type of Response: Research project
Knowledge User: South East Local Health Integration Network
ICES Scientist: Ana Johnson, Michael Campitelli
Summary: Currently, patients requiring vision rehabilitation experience fractured and disparate care. The South East Ontario Vision Rehabilitation Service (SOVRS), a patient-centred service, was established to target these gaps. By monitoring the healthcare resource use of individuals with low vision in the South East LHIN, the knowledge user will be able to determine healthcare utilization rates and costs of the SOVRS. As well, data collected from this project may help develop and influence the policy strategy to guide and improve vision rehabilitation care.
