As co-Chairs of HEAL, Mr. Glenn Brimacombe and Dr. Karen Cohen, along with representatives from the Canadian Medical Association and the Canadian Nurses Association, met with Premier Brad Wall (Saskatchewan) and Premier Robert Ghiz (Prince Edward Island) and the Provincial & Territorial Ministers of Health to discuss the progress to-date of the Health Care Innovation Working Group. HEAL looks forward to continuing to participate in the working group process to accelerate the adoption of applied health innovations across the country.

Given the role and contributions that HEAL has made to the Council of the Federation process to-date and the work of the Health Care Innovation Working Group (HCIWG), we have developed a backgrounder entitled “Contributing to the Council of the Federation’s Health Care Innovation Working Groups…Some Health Providers ABCs”.  The document speaks to the important impact that providers can have on the process, both at the national, and provincial and territorial level.

HEAL had the opportunity to meet with Ms. Libby Davies, Deputy Leader of the New Democratic Party of Canada, and Health Critic.  This was a unique opportunity to not only hear about the details contained in their White Paper “Health Care Now is the Time”, but to signal HEAL’s interest in continuing a productive dialogue as the NDP’s thinking advances in lead-up to 2014 (the 10-year anniversary of the 2004 Health Accord), and the next federal election.

HEAL was very pleased to meet with The Honourable Fred Horne, Minister of Alberta Health & Wellness.  The meeting allowed for a dialogue that covered recent innovations be considered in Alberta, the Council of the Federation Health Care Innovation Working Group (HCIWG) process, and where there may be possible opportunities for the federal government to contribute to advancing health innovation.  HEAL looks forward to continuing to dialogue with the Minister and his colleagues as the HCIWG continues its work.
