Health Care: Allan Gregg In Conversation With Jeffrey Simpson [VIDEO]
"Our system ranks, at best, somewhere in the middle on quality on timeliness access (i.e. access) and on cost," Simpson tells Gregg. He adds that Gregg has probably come across some of the research that's been done on health care practices himself as his company Harris/Decima works with data and statistics to provide consultancy for various industries. Further, Simpson says that the research he has come across concludes that, "we have a system that is way over the norm when it comes to expense, way below the norm when it comes to timely access, and kind of in the middle when it comes to quality—and that's not good enough." In his book, Simpson spells out some radical reforms to fix the country's crippled medical system. He is a National Affairs columnist for The National Post and used his years of experience analyzing international policy to assess Canada's health care issues.
Gregg, who is also a major player in public policy and consulting, addresses trends in economics and consumer behaviour in his keynotes and writing. He presents businesses with valuable insights into their industries while simultaneously keeping an eye on the political climate of the country—making his talk a must see for anyone who stands to gain from better understanding our current economic situation.
