“Americans think of Canadian socialized care as some kind of utopia. Let me tell you that it is not. We need more innovation and as has been said, disruptive innovation is what we need to empower patients. But in Canada, it’s not allowed in healthcare. Pity.”
True…when the government controls how healthcare is paid for (and then private insurers follow their lead), there is absolutely no innovation because, our job as healthcare entrepreneurs is to create new ways doctors are paid and new ways to deliver healthcare. Control how doctors are paid and you control everything.
