The government Legault and the Fédération des médecins spécialistes du Québec (FMSQ) confirmed Wednesday the creation of the Institute of the relevance, which will include a mandate to eliminate medical procedures unnecessary. If the president of the defunct Québec medical Association (QMA), Dr. Hugo Come, was glad to see attention finally to the question of the appropriateness of care, it was unlikely that the new institute to be devoid of “bias”.

Composed of four government members and four representatives of the FMSQ, the Institute of the relevance will be responsible for managing the $ 1.6 billion that the government wants to puncture over four years in the aggregate compensation package for medical specialists.

By 2022-2023, the institute will have recovered $ 240 million in “relevance”, says the chief of cabinet of the president of the Treasury Board, Marie-Ève Bédard. “He may decide to eliminate certain acts, abolition of bonuses or review of lower rates due to technological advances”, illustrates it.

Ms. Bédard ensures that the decisions of the Institute of relevance will be based on the recommendations of the experts. It refers in particular to the work of the Collège des médecins du Québec, the Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux (INESSS) and the campaign to Choose carefully.

Neutrality

“The role of the Institute will be to identify the measures that will allow to get the

$ 240 million. And he will do so from the science and data that exist. There will be an obligation of result. The$ 240 Million, they will be delivered,” insists Marie-Ève Bédard.

Dr. Hugo Just glad that it looks finally on the appropriateness of care in Quebec, you wonder if the money is “well invested” in specialized medicine and make doctors “responsible and accountable”.

The QMA (the association is now dissolved, but his mission is continued within the canadian medical Association), ” he recalls, grows in this direction since 2014 with the campaign to Choose with care, which acts as a national spokesperson for the reduction of tests and treatments are unnecessary in health, and whose website features a multitude of recommendations by medical specialty.

Feared by the Dr. Come on, it’s that the government put “all its eggs” in the FMSQ and INESSS, “which is very close to the FMSQ”. He doubted that the Institute of the relevance to have the neutrality necessary to make the best decisions on the relevance of the acts to media.

“It would be a shame that the government ignores the leg of Choose with care,” says the doctor, who regrets that the government of quebec has always refused to invest in this campaign “efficient and devoid of bias,” as did the other provinces.

The office of the president of the Treasury Board, it was noted that there will be a “board of regulations” that will take place when the government and the FMSQ do not agree, and that the Institute of the relevance will be transparent. “The whole of what he will do will be made public,” says Marie-Ève Bédard.
