Public Consultation on Healthcare Innovation
The Advisory Panel on Healthcare Innovation launched a Canada-wide consultation on healthcare, with the goal of engaging healthcare leaders, experts and the public in the conversation.
The consultation includes an online questionnaire to seek the views of Canadians, as well as a request for written submissions from stakeholders and experts.
The Panel has been specifically asked to recommend five ways the federal government could better support innovation that improves care for patients and strengthens the healthcare system, without raising the overall cost to taxpayers, and while respecting jurisdictional roles.
