PATIENTS FIRST CLOSING THE HEALTH CARE GAP IN CANADA "This book is a must read for those who are interested in our health care system and who want to make it better. Dr. Montague provides an interesting overview of his journey through hospital wards, clinical trials, patient registries, patient health management and chronic disease management programs. Drawing on his diverse and unique background, he gives an important history of the past, analysis of the present and a glimpse of our future." --David Johnstone, MD President, Canadian Cardiovascular Society "Based on significant practice and research experience in the public, private and academic worlds, over many regions of Canada, Dr. Montague reveals to the reader, consumer, decision maker and patient an evolving and, until now, largely overlooked dimension in optimizing care and outcome. This optimization is important not only within the context of an individual's care, but within the scope of an entire practice, community or even nation." --Ross Tsuyuki, PharmD Director, The Epidemiology Coordinating and Research Centre, University of Alberta "Listen to Dr. Montague. He well understands both the problem and the solution, which is to pull out all the stops and to put patients first. He advocates patient health management to close the many care gaps. This will result in improved health for millions of Canadians and then, if we do it right, by emphasizing research and evidence-based health care and not merely budgets, our health care system will become more cost effective and our population healthier and more productive." --Mark Poznansky, PhD President, Robarts Research Institute

When it comes to health care, patients come first. Patients First: Closing the Health Care Gap in Canada is distilled from one physician’s personal journey from the traditional and individual patient orientation of medicine to a broader vision of achieving the best health care for the most people at the best cost. At the centre of Dr. Terrence Montague's vision is the patient, and he provides a blueprint that will deliver optimal health care results without placing an even greater burden on available resources. The author urges that our health care system adopt the principles of Patient Health Management, in particular developing community-based partnerships, measuring results, and focusing on the four key causes of the care gap: less than optimal access, diagnosis, prescription, and compliance. Patients First starts with a premise that no one can take issue with: Things can be better in our health care system, in every way. Dr. Montague's prescription for improved health care--how patients, practitioners and policy-makers can make incremental improvements that will make things better--is supported by case studies, population-based evidence and first-person testimonials.
