About the IDCA

For 20 years, the not-for-profit Independent Diagnostic Clinics Association has represented non-physician and physician independent health facilities (IHFs) in Ontario.

Respected for its constructive opinions and solutions, the IDCA has been a trusted advisor to the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario through direct advocacy, as well as through several working groups and community-based committees designed to improve Ontario’s changing health care system. The IDCA has assisted the Ontario government in realizing its goals to enhance our healthcare system while promoting understanding of the impact of decisions and helping to shape initiatives that affect IHFs throughout our province.

The IDCA is dedicated to:

  • Achieving excellence in patient care through the development and maintenance of high standards in the quality of health care services;
  • Promoting early detection and early intervention;
  • Contributing to the effective management of diagnostic services in Ontario through collaboration with the Ministry of Health and Long-term Care and other stakeholders; and
  • Supporting its members and enhancing the status of all Independent Health Facilities in Ontario.
