The Canadian health care system offers universal access to its population, but costs considerably less than the U.S. system. The purpose of this project was to examine these two health care systems, particularly with regard to their physician services sectors, so as to formulate cost-effective recommendations designed to make the technological advances of modern medicine available to a larger portion of the American public. Extensive literature research was conducted on both systems, and specific recommendations were made.
