MaRS and McKesson Canada presents: “Why Healthcare Needs More Innovation Not More Dollars”

Delivering patient-centric healthcare in a system besieged by an aging population, chronic disease, and rising costs is challenge for all governments in Canada. Though more healthcare dollars are often seen as the panacea for fixing the ills of the system, it is McKesson Canada’s view that the missing ingredient is innovation in how healthcare is delivered.
