Members of the Zoomers group CARP are watching as federal, provincial and territorial health ministers meet in Vancouver.
They’re hoping for action on system wide changes recommended in reports over the years to address concerns of a population that’s changed from when the Canada Health Act was conceived.

CARP’s calling for …
System-wide changes – National standards of quality care and access rather than more incremental changes or pilot projects
Patients’ priorities – Redesign the system around the patients’ priorities rather than those of the care providers
Patient-driven funding – Funding models organized and financed around the patient’s needs rather than doctors and hospitals
National pharmacare plan – Ensure access to needed medications regardless of income and postal code.  More than bulk buying is needed.
There should be a national formulary and a single affordable price for all public private payors across the country.
