2014 Event

The 2014 Health Summit focused on two interrelated issues that represent the most complex challenges to system sustainability that will affect the health of all Canadians, now and in the future: the system is misaligned with an aging population; and the current delivery model is ill-equipped to address chronic care and prevention.

The speakers examined the issues of elder and chronic care under the five priorities for change identified at the 2012 Health Summit:

  1. Fix the gateway to the health care system
  2. Invest in and use technology more intensively in the health care system
  3. Change health professional compensation
  4. Build an appropriate support system to care for the elderly
  5. Improve the state of Canadians' overall health and wellness

Health care system leaders gathered at the Summit to discuss the latest research, hear from top Canadian and international experts, and explore practical solutions to complex challenges in senior and chronic care.
