More spending leading to better care seems true in Canada also

Recently I blogged about data indicating that sometimes more (money spent ) is better (better outcomes in health care) as well as in most everything else even though you sometimes hear just the opposite from devotees who misinterpret and over interpret the Dartmouth Atlas data.

Now we have this JAMA article from Canada that suggests that outcomes for heart failure,hip fracture and some other conditions are better when more money in spent.

Shows that people don't read the caveats in either the Dartmouth or the Ontario study... survival increase of a few percent in n=20 000 study... not much
