Canadian hospitals and health systems continue to face mounting pressures in managing the equilibrium of providing sufficient access, maintaining quality and reducing operating costs across integrated health networks, within acute facilities and ultimately into the community. Alignment of funding to clinical services and location is under the microscope – value-based healthcare is emerging as the new paradigm of providing clinical services. This, coupled with the inexorable rise of technology, big data, analytics & artificial intelligence, is providing an emerging fertile ground to unlock the value of Canadian health data to transform care pathways, clinical practice and ultimately the structure of health systems within Canada.
What role will big data play to enable value-based healthcare and how should we react, adapt, and adopt?
