Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta March 28, 1773 THE IETHBRIDGE HWAID Medicare system criticized BANFF, Alia. (CP) A Uni- versity oE British Columbia psychologist has as "either inane or naive" the medicare system under which psychiatrists In Canada arc au- tomatically paid for seeing a patient whether or not (hey do him any good. Dr. Peter McLean leveled his criticism in an interview fol- a speech to the liflh Banff International conference on behavior modification, at- tended by psycholo educa- tionists and social workers from across North America. The medicare system, said Dr. McLean, has taken biil pay- ment out of the hands of the patient consumer and handed .it over to a third party, the provincial health insurance commissions. The commissions do not require private practi- tioners to demonstrate quality of care, he charged. The commissions lack any means of evaluating the ef- fectiveness of the psychiatrist's work, and simply send him a cheque based on the number of consultations he reports over a certain period, he suggested. As a result, psychiatrists do not have to answer (o anyone for the effectiveness of their work. The existing system actually penalizes the quality-conscious practitioner, because it does not pay him for the time he would have to take from lucrative consultation for laborious eval- uation work, he said. "So there's no fee for ser- Dr. McLean said, "it's a fee for consultation." He emphasized, Irowever, that he was not arguing for a return to pre-mndicaie days to make psychiatrists more ac- countable to their patients. In- stead, he proposed that "ceiling salaries" replace the present fee for service systems of pay- ment. Fee for service encourages practitioners to think prim- arily in terms of the number of "patient contacts" they make a day. Freed from the temptation to maximize incomes, they could spend more time ravieing pa- tient records and doing studies to check the success of their therapy, Dr. McLean said. Gov't real estate value not known OTTAWA (CP) The public works department has no idea whether government real estate is worth 510 hillion or 520 bil- lion. It also doesn't know whether government land and buildings re being used properly. But the department lias de- cided to find out and it has ap- poinlet Andre Perrier, a 42- year-old developer, to do the job. Public Works Minister Jcan- Eudes Cube Monday announced that Mr. Perrier has been named assistant deputy minis- Icr responhiMe for real estate. He said it will be Mr. Per- rier's job to evaluate govern- ment properly and to suggest how these real estate holdings can best be used. The new as- sistant deputy minister is leav- Ing his job as vice-president of Campeau a construction and development firm, to join the department. John MacDonald, deputy min- at a news conference that the value of all federal real estate has been estimated at more than S10 billion but it could be as much as billion. The department wanted to pin the figure down exactly. He estimated that 41 per cent of all government buildings arc in the Ottawa-Hull region. An- other 14 per cent are in olher parts of Ontario while 21 per cent are east of Ontario and 21 per cent west of the province. Mr. Dubc said thai in some cases Ihe federal government may decide thai selling or leas- ing land would be better than using it for government depart- ments. The government is building large federal centres in Hull Montreal, Hnlifnx, Onl. Calgary and Vancouver whicl will include office and store space leading to commercial in lercsts.
