Based on the strong research findings of recent healthcare reports, we have a historic opportunity to move forward to secure the future quality and stability of healthcare in Canada. Four priority areas are suggested in this paper:
- Creating an adequate, health-only cash transfer from the federal government, and providing stability and predictability via an agreed-upon escalator.
- Buying change by targeting some resources towards primary healthcare reform, health human resource needs, quality and information technology.
- Providing Canadians with coverage for catastrophic drug costs.
- Creating new mechanisms for transparency and partnership, including a National Quality Council and a national forum for ongoing health policy advice to governments.
