More Spending Does Not Ensure Better Healthcare

The Conference Board of Canada has revealed that investing more money in the country’s healthcare system will not serve any purpose, as this does not necessarily// result in better services. The manner in which the money is spent is more important, according to Conn Hamilton, the author of the report. The name of the report is Healthy Provinces, Healthy Canadians.

The best healthcare system in the country is available at British Columbia, while in the case of Manitoba, it is reportedly the least satisfactory, even though the per capita expenditure with regard to healthcare is the same for both provinces. Manitoba has the highest infant mortality rate in the country, in addition to lung cancer cases. Manitoba also has a large proportion of the elderly and aboriginal population in the country. Labrador and Newfoundland spend the maximum at $2,800 per person, but their rankings are quite low.

The healthcare expenditure in 2005 was at $142 billion for the entire country. This information has been released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information. As many as 119 different health indicators where compared, taking into account categories like health-care utilization, health-care outcomes, and health status to arrive at the rankings. The health indicators are inclusive of waiting times with regard to hip replacements, cancer survival rates, teen smoking rates, and life expectancy, in addition to the satisfaction of the patient with regard to the care of the doctor.

The highest satisfaction scores were seen in the case of Nova Scotia, even though it was rated at the very bottom of the performance list. Canada has been ranked at 11th when in comparison to other industrialized nations, while Japan was the first. Even though the country ranked well with a low AIDS rate, it fell behind with regard to breast, lung, and colorectal cancers.
