Progress report 2012: Health care renewal in Canada – Health Council of Canada – June 2012

Extract from the foreword:

“What we call the Canadian health care system is, in reality, 14 different health care systems, each governed individually to meet the needs of its citizens. The 2003 First Ministers’ Accord on Health Care Renewal and the 2004 10-Year Plan to Strengthen Health Care were attempts to identify common priority areas shared by federal, provincial, and territorial governments, and to set out steps that needed to be taken to help improve the Canadian health care system as a whole.

Part of the Health Council of Canada’s mandate is to report on the progress made by the federal, provincial, and territorial governments since these accords. In this year’s report, we examine progress for five specific priority areas: home and community care, health human resources, telehealth, access to care in the North, and comparable health indicators. Another important part of our mandate is sharing innovative practices, so that governments, organizations, and the public can better understand what approaches are working, and why. In this report we have shone a spotlight on a number of innovative practices that reflect the spirit of innovation across the country.”
