Dr. Michael Klein
     Physician, Researcher and Funding Member of
     the Canadian Doctors for Medicare Website
Other organization attended and good to know is CCPA.
Questions I raised at the Q&A period -
1. Is the Medical Act regulating the medicare profit driven operation?
A: Current there is no law regulates the profit driven stakeholder ROI
    practice. A case in UK, over the 3-4 year period, 200CAD      investment in medicare turned into Millions. - by Dr. Pollock
- What do you think? Any suggestions on that? Email me.

2. In terms of balancing the sustainability of operating the medicare      business and the ethical standards, what kind of profit margin is      reasonable to both stakeholder and the public?
A: I would say 10-12% when I quote the government. But this is      hard to have a boundary since all depends on the cost of the      expending the facility and new programs. However, the medicare      operation should not be operated as if it is a commodity.
                            - by Dr. Hildahl
  - What do you think? Let me know your answer on that by email.

3. (Due to limited time, I did not get to ask...but the audience came      up to me to ask for my 3rd question)
    Are following data published to certain websites where public can      access the following facts:
1) Government budgeting | individual hospital budgeting
2) The pay rates to medicare professionals in all levels
3) The year end profit vs. performance table compare with previous      years and compare with other hospitals and compare with      different provinces
A: If you know the answer, please email me. Thanks.
