The meeting of the Twain : managing health care capital, capacity and costs in Canada Barer, M. L.; Evans, Robert G., 1942-


We begin by elaborating briefly on the fundamental differences noted above between the two systems. We then outline Canada's approach to health care system management, the relationship of such management to the management of each type of health care capital, and the inter-connected nature of the three classes of capital. The paper closes with our observations on where health care system management strategy is likely to go in Canada, on the challenges ahead, and on the significance of some of those challenges for American health care system reform.
