Canada's health care system overrun by administrators and lacks doctors
Calgary Herald: 'There is one striking difference between the two countries: Canada has 10 times as many health-care administrators as Germany, even though Germany has twice the population of Canada.
'This is a glimpse at their respective ratios of health-care bureaucrats to populations: Canada has one healthcare administrator for every 1,415 citizens.
'Germany: one healthcare administrator for every 15,545. “Every system needs some sort of administration but this statistic strongly suggests that we may be overburdened by bureaucracy and so-called ‘paper pushers.’
'One realistic prescription for improving the public health system may be to hire fewer administrators and a lot more doctors, specialists, and health-care workers instead,” suggests Martinuk.'
