Perspective: Healthcare Transformation, Part 1 — The 3rd Platform and Population Health

This IDC Health Insights Perspective examines Canada's transformation in the healthcare industry. Canada's commitment to population health is a unifying force for the entire spectrum of health system interventions — from prevention and promotion to health protection, diagnosis, treatment, and care — and integrates and balances action between them. Provinces, territories, cities, and other stakeholders responsible for Canadian healthcare service provision have attempted to manage at-risk populations; they have been doing so with limited data and a minimal level of integration between healthcare delivery providers and support systems.
