Wednesday, September 25, 2019 - Toronto, ON

8:00am to 9:00am, join us for Breakfast at 7:30am

Dr. Chris Simpson, Former President, Canadian Medical Association

Topic: Ontario's Access to Care Challenges from My Side of the Gurney and Computer

By international standards, Canada performs poorly in all areas of access to care. Whether it is access to primary, specialist, mental health, surgical, ALC, palliative or home care, we systematically under perform.  As a clinician Dr. Simpson sees the effects of this on his patients every day.  As a chief medical information officer for a technology vendor, he sees how modern technology can help improve wait times and access to care across the care continuum.

Tuesday, October 08, 2019 - Toronto, ON

8:00am to 9:00am, join us for Breakfast at 7:30am

Eileen Dahl, Patient Partner, Dr. Toni Dedeu, Interim CEO and Director IFIC, Walter P. Wodchis, Professor, IHPME and Research Chair, IESIBE, Trillium Health Partners and Jodeme Goldhar, Executive Lead, Strategy and Innovation, The Change Foundation

Topic: Innovation. Inspiration. Integration: Co-designing for Health and Wellbeing with Individuals and Communities

Making integrated care a reality is one of the most important opportunities in front of us.   It is time to improve the experience and outcomes of care, value for money, and to fundamentally shift where and how care is accessed and provided.  In many ways, the opportunity in front of us is a universal movement for health system improvement. This session will include examples from around the world of integrated care applicability. We will interpret these examples to make them relevant to our national and provincial context, and showcase just how important it is to have patients and caregivers as partners in realizing the potential of integrated care.

Join this panel as they work to bring a community together to accelerate integrated care in anticipation of the first North American conference of the International Foundation for Integrated Care – when healthcare leaders, providers, policy makers, patients and caregivers from over 60 countries will descend on Toronto to learn, share and grow as a movement for improvement – which is now only a year away.

Location: University of Toronto, Rotman School of Management, Desautels Hall, 2nd Floor, 105 St. George Street, Toronto, ON, Canada
