Family Doctor Finder - Program Results

coupleHaving access to ongoing care from someone who knows you and your health needs results in better care and better health outcomes for patients - which contributes to a more cost-effective and sustainable health system over the long-term. Manitoba continues to make strategic investments to ensure more Manitobans have ongoing access to quality primary care that meets their needs.  

Family Doctor Finder is there to help Manitobans find a home base for their health care - and now works with Manitobans who register, to connect them with a family doctor or nurse practitioner in a convenient location. Family Doctor Finder strives to match registrants within 30 days of registration, and the program has been consistently matching over 80 per cent of Manitobans within that timeframe since 2015.

How is Family Doctor Finder doing right now?

  • As of September 2016 (statistics based on registrants without a family doctor or nurse practitioner at time of registration):

    • 80-91 per cent of Manitobans without a provider who registered with Family Doctor Finder since 2015 were matched within 30 days of registration each quarter. Click here to see a year-over-year quarterly comparison.
    • 95 per cent of all Manitobans without a provider who registered with Family Doctor Finder had been matched (62,591 people who did not have a provider matched).
