More Woes Hound Canadian Health Care System
It seems that more problems continue to halt the progress of the Canadian Health Care System. Since the last quarter of 2016, Canada’s provincial and health ministers have been fighting each other over as they haggle with their federal counterparts for more funds to address the needs of the country’s healthcare system. Back in 2004, they received a record $41-billion over the past decade. Across Canada, emergency departments still remain congested as more senior citizens get confined for longer periods, living almost no room for younger generations who need health care.
Furthermore, the Canadian Institute for Health Information released a report entitled “How Canada Compares” which claims that Canadians wait longer for health care compared to other patients in many other countries. This result is based on a Commonwealth Fund Study last year among adults from 11 countries. However, the study also indicates that while Canadians wait longer to be checked up by their doctors, they are generally much satisfied with the experienced of being checked up on.
According to the author of the study, Canadians continue to complain that they waste longer times while waiting for medical professionals and emergency department studies, but commend the quality of the service rendered to them. Trailing behind Canada are Germany, France, Norway, the Netherlands, Sweden, New Zealand, and Australia. Furthermore, the study also said that less than half of Canadian patients, roughly around 43 per cent, could get an appointment either on the day they needed the treatment, or the following day. It also claimed that these patients often get checked up by their family doctors at their regular place of care the last time they needed medical attention. New Zealand garnered the highest percentage at 76 percent, followed by the Netherlands 77 percent. The international average was 57 percent, according to CBC.
Globe and Mail reported that more aging Canadians suffer from multiple chronic diseases. Unfortunately, they are taken to the hospital to be treated and released once they have recovered but after a few days, they are taken to the hospital again because of their unstable health conditions. Nobody holds accountability for their safe journey across these settings.
Meanwhile, Canada's health-care system has also been the subject of another study. It has been discovered that medically-assisted deaths could result in substantial reduction of health care spending in the country. Furthermore, it also suggested that doctor-assisted death will save the country between $34.7 million and $136.8 million.
