It is our pleasure to invite you to the 5th Annual Patients Redefining the Future of Health Care in Canada Summit (previously the Drug Pricing Policy Summit), being held virtually this year.
This annual patient education and awareness Summit is a joint project between Save Your Skin Foundation and the Canadian Psoriasis Network. This year, Value-Based Healthcare Canada (an initiative of the Conference Board of Canada) joins as the co-host of our session on value-based health care.
Ongoing barriers and systemic issues experienced by patients in Canada have become starkly clear in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. This virtual Summit will share information on the state of health and health care for different populations and how COVID-19 has impacted population health as well as specific policy issues facing Indigenous communities, older adults, populations living with mental health issues, and people experiencing income insecurity. The audience will include members of the patient and caregiver community from all disability and disease areas as well as other health care stakeholders.
In addition, the Summit will update attendees on the progress of value-based health care (VBHC) projects in Canada. The Summit will continue to focus on shifting toward a value-based approach to health care in Canada that improves value to patients, particularly as we move toward ongoing mitigation and eventual recovery from the pandemic.
It will also continue to foster collaboration and partnerships between patient and caregiver communities and other relevant health care stakeholders.
