2016 Event

Within the last 3 years, The Conference Board of Canada has facilitated international roundtables and conferences on innovative, value-based procurement in Toronto, Barcelona, Russia, Halifax, Montreal and Portugal. This exposure gave the Conference Board a platform to draw on international dialogue and experiences to further the discussion in Atlantic Canada. The one-day conference brought national and international expertise and experience in value-based procurement to increase capacity, seed ideas for change, and strengthen a network and community of practice to advance reform.

The conference tapped into conversations that are taking place within and between provinces and the federal government in order to explore plans and practices of procurement to allow for more scope for innovation. Delegates came away with a sense of the opportunities and how to embrace evolving procurement practices that will result in better patient outcomes and an enhanced bottom-line.
