Lessons from Alberta Health Services: The Future of Health in Ontario

October 30, 2018
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.  Eastern Time

Ontario's governance model for healthcare is evolving to improve health outcomes. Alberta Health Services (AHS) has been very successful in its province-wide integration of services across the healthcare continuum. Join us as we discuss Regional Health Authorities (RHA) and other types of healthcare models, including how AHS has improved quality, safety and financial sustainability through its RHA, the challenges and opportunities that exist with different types of integrated systems, and what health leaders should be doing to get ready for potential changes to healthcare delivery models in Ontario.
