App could slash wait times for knee, hip replacements
The Chronicle Herald
An orthopedic surgeon and his tech-savvy team think your smartphone could slash wait times for knee and hip replacements, two surgeries patients can wait painfully long years to receive. Dr. Michael Dunbar's application would tap into the accelerometer in smartphones, which measures the speed of movement. If the phone were strapped to someone's back, it could create a three-dimensional picture so that doctors can read changes in gait that signal the deterioration of hips or knees, the Capital Health orthopedic surgeon said.

The Globe and Mail
People calling 911 in non-emergency situations could soon wait longer for medical help as changes proposed to the provincial ambulance service's rules could mean firefighters and municipal first responders stop answering over a third of medical calls. The change would be included in the second phase of a sweeping overhaul of the response protocols of the B.C. Ambulance Service first enacted last fall.

Canadians spending more out of pocket on health care
CBC News
Canadians' out-of-pocket spending for prescription drugs, dental care and insurance premiums rose over a 12-year period for all families, especially people with lower incomes who may have reduced their use of health-care services, a new report suggests. Statistics Canada's report, "Trends in out-of-pocket health care expenditures in Canada, by household income, 1997 to 2009," shows the increase in these expenses was greatest for households in the lowest one-fifth of income.

Little progress made in cutting down surgical wait times
Montreal Gazette
Nearly one in three Montrealers in need of elective surgery — from hip replacements to a triple bypass — continues to wait at least half a year for their operation, despite attempts by the provincial government to cut wait times, newly-released government figures show. In fact, there are slightly more Montrealers waiting a minimum of a half year for surgery as their were in 2008, when the government first started tackling the problem.
