Recently, PPI launched a product from VUMI Canada. Backed by an international integrated healthcare enterprise group with more than 35 years of industry leadership, VUMI Canada has been gaining countrywide recognition by offering Canadians private VIP medical services.
Medical wait times in Canada have been a cause of ongoing concern for some time now. The Fraser Institute reports annually on Canadian healthcare wait times and in their 2019 report, they found that the waiting times for medically necessary treatments have increased since 2018. In fact, physicians reported a 20.9-week waiting period between receiving a family doctor referral and the start of treatment compared to the 19.8 weeks reported in the previous year. These numbers also indicate a 124% increase from 1993, when wait times were just 9.3 weeks .
