Using Design Thinking to Scale Telemedicine: OTN’s Enhanced Access to Primary Care Initiative

Telemedicine brings great value to patients by increasing access to healthcare and providing the tools to support more effective self-management of chronic diseases.

While telemedicine growth over the past decade has been strong, scale remains elusive due to the lack of natural business models.

Understanding Public and Private Prescription Drug Insurance Coverage in Canada

The report, Understanding the Gap: A Pan-Canadian Analysis of Prescription Drug Insurance Coverage, finds that 95 per cent of Canadians (more than 34 million) are eligible for some form of prescription drug coverage.

Understanding the complex landscape of public and private prescription drug insurance coverage in Canada can provide opportunities to ensure all Canadians have access to affordable medicines.

In this webinar, author Greg Sutherland will provide an overview of the main report highlights, including how the majority of Canadians have access to prescription drug coverage through private or public plans and the number of those who enrol in such programs. Greg will also discuss how The Conference Board of Canada estimated the number of uninsured Canadians and provide a closer look at out-of-pocket spending on prescription drugs.

After Pneumonia: Addressing the Health and Economic Burden of Pneumonia in Canada

The Conference Board of Canada has engaged in research series on the burden of pneumonia in Canada, which has debilitating impacts on seniors, children, and the immune-compromised population. Pneumonia can also arise as a costly complication during hospital stay, with some patients experiencing longer length of stay and associated costs after developing pneumonia compared to other reasons for hospitalization.

Changing demographics, namely an aging and growing population, will play a key role in the future health and economic impact of pneumonia on the health care system, to the economy, and to society. With annual costs increasing from $216 million in 2010 to $532 million in 2025, addressing pneumonia today is necessary.
