Health care is the largest service industry in Canada and affects all Canadians. However, the sector presents some of the most complex management challenges facing researchers, policymakers, and professionals. These challenges cannot be addressed effectively by one single discipline or siloed healthcare delivery models. Through an innovative systems-based approach to management and strong collaborations with hospitals, clinics, and community-based organizations, this research group will generate the knowledge needed to overcome these challenges, enhance the efficiency of the health system, and improve care for all Canadians.
