Chamber suggests ways to transform health care in the province
The Hamilton Chamber of Commerce is making recommendations to improve health care in Ontario.
The suggestions are being released in partnership with the Ontario Chamber of Commerce after a year of research and consultation. A survey found that just 39 per cent of Ontarians are confident the health care system will be able to provide a high level of care in the future. Half of Ontarians felt the system needs to be better managed.
The Hamilton Chamber feels collaboration between the public and private sector iskey to solving some of the system’s woes.
The top three recommendations from the joint chamber report, called Health Transformation: An Action Plan for Ontario, are:
Shift Ontario toward a valuebased health care system.
Modernize procurement and supply chain processes.
Better integrate technical discoveries and innovations.
“Cross-industry collaboration is critical to solving some of the issues faced by Ontario’s health care sector,” Hamilton Chamber president Keanin Loomis said in a release.
