Paul-Émile Cloutier is the president and CEO of HealthCareCAN
, a national organization representing health care delivery hospitals, research hospitals and health authorities. The organization as significant institutional knowledge and is able to influence policy and funding at the federal level on behalf of its members.
Some key challenges of the healthcare service delivery in Canada includes the need to recognize research hospitals as innovation hubs that drives Canada's economy, the reduction of hallway care and addressing aging critical infrastructure. But the healthcare system is resilient despite stagnant resources to combat these challenges and the increasing costs related to each.
A challenge in healthcare also observed at the international level is the costs that are continually increasing.
Paul-Émile Cloutier expects from the IHF to be present at the WHO and other international bodies for HealthcareCAN members to have access to international key information.
