Andrew Coyne

The Politics and Business of Health Care Reform

Health care reform is happening and Atlantic Canada is not alone.  The sustainability crisis has driven stakeholders to consider change to adapt to new models for service delivery, technology and aging demographics.  What it will look like and how we will get there remains a big question in both the public and private sectors. 

Mr. Coyne will look at the history and evolution of changes in health care and the opportunities and barriers to be confronted.   His insights on the current issues, the political and economic environment and leadership will help us consider the implications for all stakeholders and address questions such as:

  • Is there a way to achieve change without government simply shifting the burden to the private sector and employers and in some cases, individuals and retirees?
  • Is a fee-for-service health care system imminent (or here)?
  • Have we reached the tipping point for a government-supported two tier health care system that includes strong private/public partnerships that reward innovation?
