The Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care (CASHC)

“The Conference Board of Canada is creating the Canadian Alliance for Sustainable Health Care (CASHC). The purpose of CASHC is to provide Canadian business leaders and policy makers with insightful, forward-looking, quantitative analysis of the sustainability of the Canadian health-care system and all of its facets. CASHC will facilitate open dialogue regarding this research and its implications, with a view to improving the Canadian health system as a whole, as well as health-care practices within firms and organizations. The work of CASHC will help Canadians to better understand the conditions under which Canada’s health-care system is sustainable—financially, and in a broader sense.

A sustainable health-care system needs to successfully balance a number of dimensions:
Financial, including current and future health-care spending, fiscal balances, public and private investment and expenditures, current funding structures, and the challenges these present.
Firm-level performance, addressing the relationship between health-related costs, workforce health and firm performance. This will become increasingly important in view of changes to Canada’s demographics and labour force composition, and the related need to increase productivity growth.
Institutional, including how the health-care system’s operations, productivity, and efficiency can be improved while addressing quality of care, value for money, deployment of the health-care workforce, technology use, and innovation. All of these factors relate to how health care is organized and delivered.”
