James Orbinski Special Presentation at the 5th Annual Health Innovation Summit @ Canada 2020 Studio

Policymakers across all political stripes and jurisdictions are being confronted with the realities of a health system under immense pressure - the sustainability of which is being challenged by a growing and aging population.

Charting that path to sustainability has been the core concern of the Canada 2020 Health Innovation Summit. Now in its fifth year, the Summit will look at how advancements in technology and investments in innovation help improve health outcomes and reduce costs.

This year, we will also be analyzing the ways in which these advancements interact with the implementation of a Pharmacare plan.

Bringing together key representatives from across the health system (federal and provincial policymakers, hospital executives, patient advocates, industry leaders and researchers), the Canada 2020 Health Innovation Summit will be structured around keynotes, presentations, panel discussions and networking.

Registration is now open. Early bird prices available until January 31st, 2020
