Canada’s healthcare crisis may be real, but is the rhetoric of innovation, sustainability, and healthcare renewal wearing thin on policymakers, healthcare providers, and the public?

Glen Hodgson will describe the Conference Board’s research into health innovation strategy, and what the results could mean to the healthcare field and your organization.
