Canadian Health Care’s Digital Future: Voices of Key Leaders
Through digital health, Canada has a window of opportunity to transform the way its health-care system operates to better meet the needs of Canadians. Despite decades of reform and renewal initiatives and sustained increases in public spending, the COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the gap that exists between the expectations of citizens and the often-outmoded nature of health care in Canada. It has also served as a reminder to government and industry partners of what is possible through effective collaboration. The technology to improve patient outcomes already exists, but there needs to be a sustained effort to uplift our health-care system and transcend the status quo.
This report highlights the key outcomes and discussion threads of two roundtables of experts and stakeholders convened by PPF on Dec. 8, 2021, and March 11, 2022.
