CANADIAN HEALTHCARE SYSTEM
HEALTHCARE SYSTEM ISSUES
CAUSES OF DEATH
Cancer ( breast, childhood)
Diabetes (type 1 and type 2)
HIV & AIDS
H1N1 flu virus
Sexually transmitted infections (STI's)
Many Canadians have good access to healthcare services and experience manageable wait times. The system faces some challenges like:
Emergency room wait times
wait times for priority procedures
Location of services
Finding appropriate health service providers
Many governments are adressing wait times with solutions like:
Better management & coordination of wait lists
Better use of resources + more teamwork.
Others are using wait times as a ruse to privatize for profit doctors & their private clinics.
They have created a two parallel system that will result in doctors, nurses & other healthcare professionals to be in the public and private sectors.

5 CANADIAN HEALTH ACT PRINCIPLES
Public Administration: The plans must be administered and operated on a non profit basis by a public authority accountable to the provincial or territorial government.
Comprehensiveness: The plans must insure all medically necessary services provided by hospitals, medical practitioners and dentists working within a hospital setting.
Universality: The plans must entitle all insured persons to health insurance coverage on uniform terms and conditions.
Accessibility: The plans must provide all insured persons reasonable access to medically necessary hospital and physician services without financial or other barriers.
Portability: The plans must cover all insured persons when they move to another province or territory within Canada and when they travel abroad. The provinces and territories have some limits on coverage for services provided outside Canada, and may require prior approval for non-emergency services delivered outside their jurisdiction.
More than 80% of patients have access to a regular doctor. However lack of access is a problem in the territories in the 10 largest communities. Pateients in Canada wait longer for primary care appointments than those in many other developed countries. The factor that maybe leading to longer times in emergency departments is the overuse of the emergency department for primary care
Canada is the top 20% of OECD countries in per-person spending on healthcare. Capacity includes the use of health information technology, which can enable dramatic transformations in the delivery of healthcare
Health indicators are standardized measures that help us compare health status and health system performance and characteristics among different jurisdictions in Canada.
How the health care system works
What aspects of the system need improvement
Enhance our understanding of the factors that influence health
Identify gaps in health status and outcomes for specific populations
EXAMPLES OF INDICATORS
BREAST CANCER: The Canadian Breast Cancer Initiative (CBCI) launched by federal government in 1993 & Public Health agency of Canada
CHILDHOOD CANCER: intensive multimodal therapy: chemotherapy, radiotherapy, and surgery
& 80% enrolled in clinical trial
DIABETES: Insulin replacement therapy for Type 1. Type 2 [Life stye changes plans ie: sport camps and diet maintenance
About 27% of Canadian's health care is paid for through the private sector. It mostly goes towards srervices thats partially covered by Medicare. ie: prescription drugs, dentistry and optometry. 75% of Canadians have some form of supplimentry private health insurance; many of them receive it through their employers. There are also large private entities that can buy priority access to medical services in Canada like WCB [Workers Compensation Board] in BC [British Columbia]
In December 2003, Health Canada officially created & announced funding for the canadian safety institute. CPSI was created to provide national leadership & coordinate the work necessary to build & advance a safer health system for Canadians. The system is collaborated with government + stakeholders, supporting the development of patient safety initiatives that will help Canadian healthcare system become the safest & best in the world.
CPSI currently focuses on 4 main areas.
Interventions & programs
Tools & resources
Total healh expenditures differs between teritories & provinces, in publicly funded healthcare systems, this differences partly due to difference in services that each province & teritories covers + also due to demographic factors like populatin age impacting health care costs.
Secondary health care services may also be provided in the home or community and in institutions (mostly long-term and chronic care).
Patient needs are assessed by medical professionals, and services are coordinated to provide continuity of care
Medical advances have led to more procedures being done on an out-patient basis, and to a rise in the number of day surgeries.
Over the past several decades, the number of nights Canadians spent in acute-care hospitals on a per capita basis has declined, while post-acute and alternative services provided in the home and community have grown
