Prescription for Excellence:
How Innovation is Saving Canada’s Health Care System

The right shrieks, “privatization!” The left pleads, “medicare is underfunded!” And all Canadians wonder: will the health care system be there when we need it? The answer, argues Dr. Michael Rachlis, doesn’t involve privatization or a lot more money. In fact, there are solutions to almost all of medicare’s apparently intractable problems — solutions that lie in encouraging the spread of innovations that already exist.

Prescription for Excellence lays out a plan to eliminate emergency room and hospital overcrowding; maximize our access to doctors through teamwork; and reform our incredibly inefficient waiting system for tests or treatment.
