The Ways Hospitals can Help Control Healthcare Costs

A couple of months back, social media platforms were abuzz with news about how some Canadian medical practitioners protested about the exorbitant hospital bills patients had to pay to regain good health – talk about living for others. Notwithstanding, the reality that is before us at this very moment is that of rising healthcare cost which is somewhat overbearing on low-income earners.
