18 October 2018
This Submission to the Canadian Standing Committee on Health (HESA) Study on Federally Funded Health Research (M-132) suggests some quick fixes that policymakers can implement in the short term, but crucially it also proposes concrete policy actions that can be taken in the long term to actively shape and co-create a health system that delivers real public value. The transformative proposals discussed in this submission include:
- A mission-oriented approach to improving health outcomes
- De-linking innovation funding from high prices
- Achieving public return through conditionality
- Changes to corporate governance: beyond shareholder value
