As Ontario continues to focus on reducing increases in health-care costs, health policy experts are recommending that the government pay hospitals for performance outcomes, rewarding those institutions and organizations that take the best care of their patients.

The Fasken Martineau Health Group invites you to a half-day session as we review what this may mean for Ontario hospitals and potential legal implications. Adalsteinn (Steini) Brown, Dalla Lana Chair in Public Health Policy at the University of Toronto, will be our guest speaker.

Topics will include:
