In the introduction, Gratzer promises that: "This book breaks from typical discussion of health care, which increasingly resembles a tiger chasing its own by: To capture Canadian health care’s growing crisis, I called my book Code Blue, the term used when a patient’s heart stops and hospital staff must leap into action to save him.

The Public Health Agency of Canada includes in its mandate reporting on health disparities, and the Canadian Institute for Health Information also reports on disparities in health care and health outcomes, with a focus on lower-income Canadians.

Few did, though, since many doctors began to realize the wisdom of Dr. Paikin’s argument that there weresome upsides to a single-payer health care system, even for doctors. The Canadian health care system was built around the principle that all citizens will receive all "medically necessary and hospital physician services."To that end, each of.
