Canada should take queues from Japan when it comes to health care

Despite billions of dollars in annual investment, Canada's health care system is in need of resuscitation.

According to the Fraser Institute, health care providers should be looking to Japan for viable reforms.

Analysts say, despite spending nearly 90 per cent less on health care than Canada each year, Japan provides its citizens rapid access to high quality care.

In a new report, the think tank calls for Canada to implement activity-based funding models for hospitals, which would reward fast and efficient patient care.

Including the private provision of hospital and surgical services.

The report also argues that wait time and access issues could be remedied by cost-sharing for all forms of medical services and mandatory social insurance provision for those who can't afford it.
