Highlights for Canadian Health Care in 2035
In November 2016, The Conference Board of Canada’s Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care (CASHC) held a Strategic Foresight workshop to examine the possible future roles of different players in the Canadian health care system from funding, service delivery, and governance perspectives.
Canadian Health Care in 2035: Service Offerings, Roles, and Accountability builds on four scenarios developed in a previous workshop that explored how health care in Canada would be funded in 2035. The four scenarios were titled:
- A Taxing Health Care System
- Paying for Your Health
- Health Care With a Human Touch
- The Health Care Warehouse
Using these scenarios, participants imagined a range of opportunities and challenges related to service offerings, roles, and accountability. There is much to understand about how health care stakeholders can best prepare for a wide range of potential future challenges and issues.
