Canada’s publically funded health care system is best described asan interlocking set of ten provincials and three territorial systems. Known as “MEDICARE” the system provides access to a broad range of health services.
When Canadian need healthcare, they most often turn to primary health care services, which are the first point of contact with the health care system. In general, primary health care serves a dual function. First it provides direct provision of first-contact health care services. Second, it coordinates patient’s health care services to ensure continuity of care and ease of movement across the health care system when more specialized services are needed.
Canada’s health system ranks one of the best health systems in the world.
