Health Innovation in Canada: Federal Role Roundtable – Background Document

The purpose of this roundtable was to gather a small, select group of thought leaders to engage in informed discourse, which was summarized in a report submitted to the new federal Healthcare Innovation Advisory Panel.

This roundtable, created in response to the Federal Healthcare Innovation Advisory Panel’s call for stakeholder input, was an exciting opportunity to provide policy makers and political representatives with recommendations on how to use innovation as a means to reduce costs and improve the quality of healthcare. The background material is presented to provide general informational support, upon which discourse for the roundtable can be built. Materials presented are not all encompassing and discourse may go beyond the particular details or general themes highlighted in this brief.
