Bending the Cost Curve in Health Care: Can It Be Done?

For at least the past two decades, governments across Canada have grappled with the issue of ever-rising health care costs.  On November 18, the Institute for Research on Public Policy held a luncheon panel discussion on what – if anything – can be done to bend the cost curve in health care. IRPP author Terrence Sullivan, President, Terrence Sullivan & Associates, presented the findings of his recent IRPP paper (coauthored by Steven Lewis). AndrĂ© Picard, public health reporter for the Globe and Mail, and Maureen O’Neil O.C., President, Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement, commented on the paper and presented their own insights on this seemingly intractable problem.
