Canada’s healthcare industry continues to adapt to the unprecedented needs of battling the Covid-19 crisis. In conversation with Canadian health systems executive and independent director Jodi Butts, Bain’s World Healthcare Practice Lead and Senior Partner, Tim van Biesen, joins us to share his insights from his international work, and to explore the vast implications of combating the coronavirus, including increased governmental funding, predicting our future supply needs better, and building greater resiliency in global and domestic supply chains.
To thrive in a post-Covid environment, how will healthcare companies take a more nuanced approach to achieving long-term sustainability, growth, and patient centred care? How should policy makers, healthcare providers, and health system executives reassess how care is delivered, where providers should interact with patients, and how we should best procure supplies? Join Canadian Club Toronto on March 11 as Tim and Jodi explore these questions and more.
