Strengthening Health Systems Through Innovation: Lessons Learned – Ivey – International Centre for Health Innovation – November 2011

Extract from the introduction

“Every developed country in the world is challenged by the increasing demands for health services and the rising costs of health care associated with rapid advances in technology and aging populations. Canada is facing similar challenges, yet has made less progress in meeting these demands when compared to other developed countries. The question is: how can Canada learn from other countries in order to more adequately prepare for the future of growing demands on health systems? The purpose of this white paper is to examine the progress made within the health systems of seven comparator countries so we may learn how they have been able to help meet population health needs more effectively and make progress in health system redesign and transformation.

The seven comparator countries selected for this analysis and learning opportunity are countries often profiled in comparative research on health system quality and sustainability. The countries included in the analysis presented herein are: the United Kingdom (U.K.), Australia, Germany, Netherlands, France, Switzerland, and the United States (U.S.). These countries have demonstrated progress and achievements in using innovation to transform health systems and are commonly compared to Canada on quality of outcomes and innovation.”
