Southwestern Ontario Chapter presents
What can healthcare learn from business?

November 25, 2013
Chatham-Kent Health Alliance (The Frank & Mary Uniac Auditorium)
80 Grand Ave West, Chatham, ON

The “age of austerity” has challenged health systems around the world to both improve service delivery and justify the suite of health services that are covered by public insurance. Hosted at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance, this exciting event will feature an expert panel of experienced health leaders and scholars who will share their perspectives on where Ontario’s health system could learn from innovative private sector practices and experienced in other jurisdictions.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour the new, state-of-the-art Anjema Eye Institute: an ophthalmology clinic that provides both public and private clinical and surgical care. Attendees are invited to review Ontario's Action Plan for Health Care as well as Jeffrey Simpson’s new book Chronic Condition to provide some background information.
