OKMA. Montreal: Institute for Research on Public Policy, 2000.
The pamphlet from the Institute for Research on Public Policy (IRPP) by Kieke Okma asks the evocative question: "What is the best public-private model for Canadian health care?" Unfortunately, the essay does not answer the question and, in fact, transforms it into a much broader, more complex nebulous query: "What policy options will be acceptable to the main stakeholders, given the general agreement on the need for change and the political will to effect change?" (p.
Nevertheless, although "one best model" of health care for all countries cannot be identified, Okma argues that countries and jurisdictions can |earn from one another To this end, she presents statistics and examples from selected OECD countries that are especially relevant to the Canadian debate.
Examining recent reports and studies of Canadian health care, Okma identifies two approaches to reform: the "school of incrementalism"--the Romanow Commission would qualify here--and the "fundamental restructuring" approach.
These chapters provide descriptions of many of the state-specific characteristics that Okma's little pamphlet could not but support her contention that the best solution in one jurisdiction may be politically, socially and economically unacceptable in another.
