In 2022, “A World Class Health Data System for Canada: Framework for Action” was authored by members of the Policy Modernization Group (PMG) to support the recommendations of the Pan-Canadian Health Data Strategy’s Expert Advisory Group.
The paper advocates for the creation of an optimized and world-class health data system in Canada by highlighting examples from other jurisdictions and encouraging healthcare stakeholders to advocate for a better system. The paper provides specific suggestions for getting involved, such as including diverse voices in the conversation, engaging with policy and decision-makers, becoming advocates within organizations, and promoting health data literacy.
This session will involve a panel discussion with several members of PMG, representing patients, industry, public sector and the scientific community.

*The Policy Modernization Group (PMG) is a collaborative effort aimed at modernizing health data policies in Canada. Comprised of approximately 45 public/private/non-profit stakeholders from across the health data ecosystem, the PMG advocates for a health care system grounded in modern data policies across all therapeutic areas, while remaining as open as possible and as regulated as necessary.
