This is the roadmap, but nobody that matters seems to be reading it.

This is a fantastic book. Gratzer hits the nail on the head. The unfortunate truth is that the people in Canada with the power to change the system won't consider an approach like this because it would be political suicide in Canada.

While some in the United States admire Canada's Single-Payer health care system, this book shows how misplaced their admiration is. In fact, Canada's system is under-funded, out-of-date and failing fast. They can't keep hold of their doctors -- or their patients. They fail to invest in new equipment or technology, and they barely perform any new research. Gratzer argues that Canada should move towards a system of medical savings accounts to restore accountability and patient power in Canada.
