Delivering innovation in primary care

Cathy Faulds (2)

The pace of change in the healthcare sector is faster than ever. These changes have created an environment of uncertainty for physicians in primary care. However, change provides an opportunity to integrate healthcare delivery in a way that's never seen before. In the video below, former OCFP President and family physician Dr. Cathy Faulds discusses innovation, standardization, and viewing primary care as a business in order to provide superior patient care.


The Ivey Academy and the Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care are partnering to host a live broadcast webinar, “Delivering Innovation in Primary Care.” Join the conversation by registering and log in on June 6 at 11 a.m. for an in-depth discussion on the challenges faced by primary care physicians in Ontario, and how innovation can be used to drive positive change in healthcare delivery.

The webinar will feature a panel consisting of Ivey Business School professor Rob Austin, Dr. Cathy Faulds, as well as Dr. Erin Sullivan, Research Director at the Harvard Medical School Center for Primary Care. The panelists will deliver lessons and insights drawn from The Ivey Academy’s two-day physician leadership program, Charting the Future of Primary Care: Leadership, Teams, and Culture, offered September 11 – 12, 2019 in Toronto, Ontario.

This topic is vital to the continued growth and success of the Ontario healthcare sector, and we believe it has far-reaching implications for anyone involved in primary care delivery, from front-line physicians to leadership.
