Value from Healthcare and Why It Is Needed in Canada

CHSPR faculty member Jason Sutherland is guest editor the October 2019 issue of Healthcare Papers, focused on value in healthcare in Canada – also the topic of the 2019 CHSPR Conference. The issue presents commentaries exploing options for improving the value from public spending on healthcare. Commonalities among the articles indicate that improving value from healthcare should focus on understanding what matters to patients and their caregivers and on measuring health and health outcomes, and that changes in financial incentives are overdue to support a higher degree of integration between providers and their organizations.
