Media Advisory - Presentation of New Research Shows 'Clear Misalignment' Between What Canadians Value, and Health System Performance Measurement and Funding

TORONTO, Nov. 22, 2012 /CNW/ -

   
WHAT:  Dr. Anne Snowdon, Chair of the Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation, will present the findings of the Centre's latest white paper, "Measuring What Matters: The Cost vs. Values of Health Care". The paper shows how the cost-focused values that Canada's health system uses to measure performance are misaligned with the health care values of Canadians. The paper also looks at the detrimental effects of this misalignment on system efficiency and patient health, and makes recommendations to achieve alignment that will help Canada's health system transition towards a cost-effective, sustainable and patient centric model.
