Physician Leadership Symposium: Canadian Healthcare and Healthcare Challenges: So You Want Universal Healthcare, Eh?

There are frequent and sometimes heated debates in the United States about the pros and cons of the Canadian Healthcare System. The Canada Health Act mandates a single payor system and promises an efficient, comprehensive, universal, portable, and accessible healthcare system for all Canadians. While the United States and Canada have many common needs concerning healthcare, how each nation goes about meeting these needs follows two distinctly different paths.

In this seminar Dr. James Calvin, an American physician who has extensive leadership experience under both systems leads an informative discussion surveying the Canadian single payor system. He explains how it works, the administrative structure, funding models, what it does well, what needs improvement, and defines the most important adaptions that may be practical and useful for U.S. Physician Leaders as they develop robust health policies and seek ways to improve care delivery and outcomes in the United States.
