News Image

Bumps in the Road to Better Health Care by Dr. Israel R. Kabashiki is a valuable book that presents a feasible proposal to help address the alarming health problems, the escalating costs of health care, the long waits for medical services, the shortage of health care providers, the ever-increasing consumerism, and other related issues that continue to challenge the health systems leaders around the world.

This book proposes a new health system model that has the potential to achieve a desirable equilibrium among accessibility to care, health costs and quality of care. Kabashiki believes that effective use of the information and communication technology (ICT) can help address these challenges. In the Canadian Health System (CHS) however, ICT investments have not addressed these challenges successfully. The CHS has not been able to address the current realities and the requirements of the twenty-first century in an effective way. A profound transformation of the Canadian health system structure and culture is therefore required. Although ICT can play a crucial role in this regard, it is essential to be aware that ICT alone cannot improve organizational performance. A new health system model is required in Canada.

Practical, informative and very helpful in addressing some of the health and health care issues developing worldwide, this book will provoke scholarly dialogue and public debate in Canada and around the world. It is required reading for scholars, health systems’ leaders, health care professionals, and health care consumers.
