The report recommends the use of value-based procurement across Canada’s health systems to increase innovation uptake and foster a more efficient healthcare system. This work will be spearheaded by an innovation agency including representatives from provincial and territorial health departments, pan-Canadian health organizations, healthcare providers, academic institutions, the private sector and the public. Report contributors include WIN Advisory Council Member Peter W. Vaughan and network partner Cameron Piron, Synaptive Medical.
Working with global partners WIN provides real-world evidence of the impact of innovation procurement practices to inform policy and build capacity to adopt and scale innovation in health systems. Case studies focus on barriers and facilitators of value-based procurement as a means to strengthen processes for industry, government and health systems to improve patient outcomes and economic growth for companies.
