Where are the big areas where Canadian hospitals are saving money? Medical billing is one obvious area where they spend less (and I've seen the research on that), but where else are savings coming from? Relatedly, are the more expensive hospitals in Canada doing more high tech medicine, paying higher prices (including salaries), providing a greater volume of services, or some combination? I'm trying to get my head around how the Canadian case is different.
