Reassessing existing funded health services and products to support appropriate care – Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement – 29 November 2013

“In Ontario, new healthcare services and technologies coming into the system must undergo a rigorous evidence-based assessment. But what about existing services and technologies that are already in use? Which of those should be subjected to new evidence-based analyses to determine if they add value and are appropriate? Without a framework to identify priorities for reassessment from the thousands of existing funded services and products, the prospect of determining which services to scale back, focus or discontinue would be problematic at best.”
