The AFMC welcomes the opportunity to inform the Advisory Panel on Healthcare Innovation and we believe that our imperative must be to identify the innovations for better health and healthcare of our senior population that will ensure the sustainability of our healthcare system.

We will provide evidence-informed examples of innovations within our Academic Health Science Networks that have led to

  • Reduced use of diagnostics
  • Reduced use of pharmaceuticals
  • Reduced hospitalizations and length of stay

And suggest that Canada can create a sustainable healthcare system by

  • Sharing and transfer of knowledge for better health, care and cost containment
  • Creating a learning health system with ongoing feedback on impact
  • Strong Federal leadership in establishing accountability for health and healthcare of Canadians
