					In Canada we as citizens expect our healthcare to be covered by our government. It is
and we have some of the best services available when patients get sick. But why do
people flock to private healthcare? Unfortunately, at times our public healthcare sector
slides, with increased wait times, overworked dedicated staff with a result in quick
delivery of service. I think we have a good healthcare system in the event that you are
sick in emergency. But I know at times even then it is hard to get the personal
attention to detail because there is another right behind you.
  These scenarios results in a window of opportunity for private healthcare clinics in
Calgary. Why wait for services when you can get tests quicker in the private sector.
For example if you need an MRI you can pay and skip the queue and get the results
that much quicker. What If you want your heart bypass surgery quicker because you
may have to wait months? Or you wish to start your cardiac rehabilitation program on
your time and quicker versus someone else’s time which will result in delayed
treatment.
  When you are in the hospital in emergency and you have to wait to get in. The
hospitals do their best to triage situations that requires service first. Of course in the
event you are having a heart attack or vital emergency you will be brought in quickly
and undergo the best standard of care. But once you are not emergent or if you are not
an emergent case you may wait. Waiting to some people is time and money. Private
healthcare clinics are popping up all over the place. Physicians themselves see the
opportunity to charge a fee or membership to an elite private healthcare service. This
form of private healthcare allows physicians to take their time with their patients to
address their concerns. Unfortunately at times physicians lack the time to spend with
patients for all the different options for their health. They have usually 5 or so minutes
and at times will often look for a quick fix with their prescription pad. Physicians are
starting to change their behavior with the influx of private healthcare clinics but it is
still difficult when you need to have a full clinic to keep up to the business demands
of having a viable public clinic. Is private healthcare the way to go? Yes and no. You
can find a physician or specialists that will take the time who is passionate about what
they do in the public healthcare system. Is this viable? Absolutely public healthcare
can meet the demands of the patient. However, if you wish to have attention to detail
and always have the ability to spend as much time as you need for your healthcare
concerns then private healthcare may be an option for you. Waiting is no fun when it
comes to your health and is the number one reason why people will go to private
healthcare clinics. When it comes to cardiac rehabilitation, quick access to cardiac
rehabilitation can reduce the likelihood of patients having another heart attack—and
reduce their risk of dying by 20 to 30 percent. Do you want to wait?
