Whole Health Innovation Collaborative Meeting: Applying Precision to Preventative Health and Personalized Medicine
Old Mill Toronto •
Collaborative Meeting Overview
Innovation at The Conference Board of Canada is a cross-cutting theme as well as an area of major focus in many of our lines of business – from research, to knowledge mobilization and thought-leadership. Join us as we explore the importance of addressing innovation from a horizontal and vertical perspective, and discuss how we can work together to find and implement solutions that will ultimately build a better future for Canadians by making our economy and society more dynamic and competitive.
The concept of precision or personalized medicine has been used widely. The concept refers to medical interventions that separate patients into different groups, whereby medical decisions, practices, policies, and programs, and/or products are tailored to the individual patient based on their predicted response or disease risk.
Expanding upon this concept more broadly, a precision health approach to interventions across all pillars of health, including health promotion and public health, health care system design and interventions, and workplace health and wellness programming and policies, presents unique opportunities to enhance health and well-being for all Canadians while delivering value-for-money.
Can Canada become a leader in this space, and what do we stand to lose if we continue to lag behind other peer countries?
Guests and Members of The Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care, The Centre for the Future of Health, and The Council for Healthy Living will come together at this event to hear about and discuss innovations in prevention and health promotion, health care system design and functioning, and workplace health and wellness. The Whole Health Innovation Collaborative Meeting will convene more than 120 delegates made up of members and other key players and stakeholders representing the public health, health care system, and employer sectors.
