Preparing for changes in public healthcare
Benefits Canada
This spring, the Canada Health Accord — the 2003 agreement between the federal and provincial and territorial governments on healthcare delivery and funding — expired. Although the current federal government has set out a new funding formula for health transfer payments to provinces, funding will be tied to economic growth and population size without adjustments to account for healthcare inflation. And while there is a position on funding, there has been little apparent movement or discussion about the delivery of healthcare going forward, and that has many wondering what this means to Canadians.

Immune cells give clues to surgery recovery times
The Chronicle Herald
One of the big frustrations of surgery: There's little way to know if you'll be a fast or slow healer, someone who feels back to normal in a week or is out of work for a month with lingering pain and fatigue. Now Stanford University researchers have discovered that right after surgery, patients' blood harbours clues about how fast they'll bounce back — and it has to do with the activity of certain immune cells that play a key role in healing.

Report: Pay increases for Canadian doctors slowing down
The Globe and Mail
The amount of public money doled out to doctors across Canada is growing at the slowest pace since at least the late 1990s, a development that suggests some provinces are succeeding in curbing physician pay increases. Total payouts to doctors topped $22.8 billion in 2012-13, up 3.5 per cent from the previous year, the smallest annual uptick since national data on doctors' paycheques began to be published in 1999-2000.
