Canada’s Ailing Healthcare System: It’s the Doctors’ Fault?

Jack M. Mintz

Abstract

The Marchildon and Sherar (2018) paper provides some useful insights: the role of primary care, improved approaches to physician compensation and the importance of accountability and governance. But their approach of focusing on doctors, including their compensation, misses the boat. Canada's healthcare system needs a major overhaul to improve integration and reward good performance for patient care going beyond medical practitioner compensation.
