Each organization, within their respective sector, is requested to submit their data reflecting their performance on their specific metric, quarterly, for reporting on this website.  

These graphs illustrate the dedication of many clinicians across North Simcoe Muskoka, in providing their patients/residents/clients with evidence-informed and consistently applied, wound management care, which means better outcomes for the North Simcoe Muskoka residents.
