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

2015 Event

Financial Models and Fiscal Incentives in Health and Health Care was the first event in a three-part series that tackle the cost drivers of the health care system.

The event addresses the 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 provided leaders with insights on what we're doing right, what we're wrong, and the opportunities to innovate in order to promote health and well-being for all Canadians while delivering value-for-money.

There was 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.
