Critical Care Services Ontario manages projects to monitor system efficiency and utilize alternative and innovative methods to ensure critically ill patients get the right care, at the right time, in the right setting, by the right health care provider. An example of how CCSO improves access to critical care is through Critical Care Response Teams (CCRTs).

CCRTs greatly improve access to critical care by eliminating the necessity of an ICU bed in order to receive critical care. By bringing these services directly to patients—wherever they are located within hospitals—Ontarians’ access to critical care is significantly broadened.
