Greater Toronto Area Chapter 
Ontario’s Health System Funding Reform: Planning for Sustainability 

October 5, 2016 
5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Eastern Time

A key focus for Ontario’s Patients First strategy is the long-term sustainability of the healthcare system. An important element to this strategy continues to be the implementation and expansion of Health System Funding Reform (HSFR), a population-based funding approach to health care and quality. Under HSFR, many of Ontario’s health care providers will be compensated based on a combination of population health needs, service volumes, and other factors.

Participants will learn about what HSFR, the Health-Based Allocation Model (HBAM), and Quality-Based Procedures (QBPs) mean for health care providers from a strategic perspective, and how health leaders should think about engaging their organizations as they plan for the future.

Featured Speaker: David Lynch, Principal in the Public Sector, Healthcare and Not-For-Profit Practice at OPTIMUS | SBR, a Toronto-based management consulting firm.

David Lynch has been a consultant to the Ontario public sector for the past 6 years and has over a decade of experience in health care, public policy analysis, financial management and research. He uses his versatile expertise to address challenges from strategic, operational and financial perspectives. David has led numerous engagements with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, LHINs, hospitals, CCACs, and community service providers, plus engagements with many other Ontario government ministries.

David is a Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA, CA), and earned an MPA in International Development and a PhD in Public Policy at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government.
