Canada continues to face persistent challenges in achieving efficient, coordinated, patient-and family-centred healthcare in all provinces and territories. Our health system places below the middle of the pack in international comparisons and has done so for many years. Transformation requires new approaches that address today’s realities—a growing population, changing patterns of health and disease, and the sustainability of the health system—to align payment systems and incentives in a way that meets the needs of Canadians and health system funders.

CFHI is building a suite of programs that focus on accelerating health system transformation in Canada.

  • Value-Based Healthcare: CFHI is working closely with expert faculty and advisors to pinpoint lessons learned, opportunities and barriers to value-based healthcare (VBHC) innovation in Canada.
  • Primary Care Reform and Integration: Enhancing improvement capacity and strengthening primary care integration are key strategies for health system transformation. Our focus is learning from efforts across Canada and internationally to improve primary care, and identifying common themes where CFHI can lend support.
