Healthy Canada: Financial Models and Fiscal Incentives in Health and Health Care

Tuesday December 1 2015 InterContinental Toronto Centre Toronto, Ontario

Summit Overview

This conference is the first in the Healthy Canada series of three events that tackle the cost drivers of the health care system.

How much do you think money matters in health and health care?

There is no disputing the growing demand for health and health care in Canada and abroad is a financial concern for governments, business, and all Canadians. With health consuming more than 40 per cent of provincial/territorial budgets in Canada, there is growing concern regarding the sustainability of the health care system and our ability to meet the needs of an aging and chronically ill population.

Dissecting what motivates behaviour from a financial and fiscal perspective will provide leaders with insights on what we’re doing right, what we’re doing wrong, and the opportunities to innovate in order to promote health and well-being for all Canadians while delivering value-for-money.

Tinkering at the margin will not result in the health system transformation we need.

Through our research and knowledge exchange events, the Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care (CASHC) at the Conference Board recognizes the need to tackle the key drivers of health system sustainability in order to achieve real system transformation. To date, system design interventions have focussed on changes in process and delivery resulting in low returns on investment (modest health benefits at high cost). It is clear that in order to achieve value-for-money, financial models need to be aligned with and incentivize the outcomes we want at all levels of health service provision

How we pay for health and health care is a key driver of health system sustainability.

There is much to learn from public and private sector organizations and policy experts in Canada and abroad on how financial models and tax incentives can be leveraged to improve population health and health system sustainability. The conference speakers and discussions will provide delegates with practical insights and evidence-based solutions that can shift the status-quo.
