Complementary currencies can reframe the growing problem with funding healthcare. In Nova Scotia, for example, healthcare is 50% of the provincial budget, with 80% of that in salaries. The key enabler is health telepresence and infostructure, which allows tracking healthcare transactions right at the point of care, whether in hospital or home, crediting social networks of caregivers with “health dollars” for their time. Health dollars circulate locally, improve engagement and quality of care.
