President & CEO of the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) to Address Economic Club of Canada

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 9, 2014) - Worldwide, health-care systems are working to address "universal truths": costs rising faster than economies; limited capacity to raise taxes to pay for health care; rising expectations about quality; and new treatments that are expensive and require more coordinated delivery. Traditional business concepts such as minimum efficient scale, operational pooling, lean thinking, and integration have important implications to effective health-system design in a way that is responsive to these facts.

In his address to the Economic Club, SickKids president & CEO, Dr. Michael Apkon will provide a framework for thinking about health-care systems, implications of business principles, and a vision to provide the right care, at the right place and the right time.
