A hydraulic system uses a series of valves to control a fixed amount of fluid based on changing demands in the system. Health systems are rapidly becoming hydraulic at the international level. For this reason, health systems will increasingly depend on innovations that decrease hospital admissions and that displace alternatives to existing technologies based on cost advantages, improved patient outcomes and/or system-wide efficiencies. Evidence will become the lens through which health systems make choices and will assume significantly greater importance than meeting regulatory requirements.
The discussion will include examples of how this has played out recently and where this is heading, particularly as this relates to information technology, genetics and diagnostics. Ontario is taking the lead in changing the application of evidence to align more closely with innovators pre-market and mitigate the risk to adoption in a future innovation-driven health system.
The talk should be of particular interest to innovators and the industry in general, and those involved in IT, genetics and diagnostics.
