The BC Surgical Patient Registry (SPR) is a provincial program involving the five regional health authorities, the Provincial Health Services Authority (PHSA) and the Ministry of Health (MoH).
The SPR is one central registry, providing a reliable and consistent approach for prioritizing patients access to surgery. Operating room booking data from all BC surgical facilities is entered daily into the registry. This provides the most up to date information on patients booked for surgery and those who have had their surgery performed. SPR tracks patients waiting for surgery in BC and provides information to evaluate and monitor surgical wait times in the province.
