Longwoods Breakfast: Not Just a Land of Pilot Projects: Excellence in Care with and for Everyone with Jennifer Zelmer
June 8, 2021 with Jennifer Zelmer, President and CEO, Healthcare Excellence Canada. Everyone in Canada wants and deserves excellence in healthcare, but that is not the reality for all. Access to quality care is uneven; health outcomes vary even more widely. And great ideas for addressing these challenges often get stuck as pilot projects, benefiting only the lucky people in the organization or region served by the initial innovator. While that doesn’t have to be the case, it’s also true that safer, higher quality care at scale doesn’t just happen. Smart approaches that move wise practice from spread to scale – and build resilience in the health sector – will be key to health system transformation as we move beyond the current phase of the pandemic.
