Document Highlights

Exploring Technological Innovation in Health Systems underscores the importance of technological innovation in Canada’s health system and sheds considerable light on its current state. In this groundbreaking report, The Conference Board of Canada uses its Innovation Framework to analyze our innovation environment, providing a snapshot of where Canada stands compared to Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries with high-performing health systems. After describing the Framework and its six components (environment; creation, diffusion, transformation and use of knowledge; and value), the report moves on to provide an overview of how Canada performs in each category, measured against the 12 OECD comparator countries. The analysis exposes our strengths and our weaknesses—some of which are glaring—and offers fact-based recommendations to help Canada develop the higher quality, more efficient and safer health system that is more imperative than ever, given the challenges that we face today and in the future.
