Québec City Healthcare Industry Forum


SCHEDULE OF THE TWO (2) DAYS

The Forum’s plenary sessions will be held in the morning of December 5 and 6, 2017, followed by two (2) workshops held simultaneously each afternoon, given by our program partners.

Tuesday, December 5, 2017 - Wednesday, December 6, 2017


Tuesday, December 5, 2017

8:00 to 8:20 A.M. | INTRODUCTION OF DAY ONE

  • Mr. Paul L’Archevêque, Principal Associate, CapCOGITO and Forum facilitator
  • Mr. Carl Viel, President and CEO, Québec International

8:00 to 8:50 A.M.  | KEYNOTE ADDRESS – Quebec’s healthcare system and its evolution

This talk, given by a representative of Quebec’s Ministry of Health and Social Services (Ministère de la Santé et des services sociaux), will kick off the 11th edition of the FORUM by highlighting the accomplishments and major changes made to Quebec’s healthcare system over the last several years. Giving an overview of the new programs, the talk will also present the main emerging trends. We will initiate the dialogue between the healthcare system and industry to examine how the achievements and changes over the last few years (family medicine groups, super clinics, OPTILAB project to reorganize medical biology laboratories and more) will impact coming innovations.

Speaker: Ministry of Health and Social Services (Ministère de la Santé et des services sociaux)

8:50 to 11:30 A.M. | STRATEGIC SESSIONS 1 to 4

The Forum’s strategic sessions will shine a light on the major changes made to the healthcare system in the last few years. Four sessions will be held back-to-back on the first day, setting the stage for discussions between healthcare industry and system stakeholders, to foster a common understanding of the issues and a shared vision of their respective contributions to optimizing care trajectories. Each session will be presented by a member of the healthcare system and facilitated by an industry representative.

1.    8:50 to 9:25 a.m.| Major changes for primary care medicine

With the emergence of super clinics, patient care is undergoing a major change. Gathering all healthcare professionals under one roof, these “mini hospitals” will offer an integrated approach to care, thus optimizing the care trajectory. A good alternative to the emergency department for patients with a non-priority condition—thus reducing wait times— it makes primary care medicine quickly available to the entire population.

How will these new clinics revolutionize patient care? What consequences and opportunities will emerge for the healthcare industry and what avenues for innovation will they create?

Speaker : Dr. Antoine Groulx, Deputy general director, health services and university medicine, Min. of Health and Social services

2.    9:25 to 10:00 a.m. | The OPTILAB project and its impacts on the healthcare system, patients and the industry

In launching this project in 2011, the Ministry of Health and Social Services (Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux) sought to equip Quebec with an optimal network of biomedical laboratories that would improve test quality, response times, safety and clinical relevance while making more efficient use of human, financial, technological and informational resources. This session is the perfect opportunity to take stock of the program’s benefits, but also the impacts it will have on industries specializing in laboratory testing.

Speakers : Dr. Michel Bureau, Associate Deputy Minister - General Health and University Medicine Directorate (Direction générale des services de santé et médecine universitaire), Ministry of Health and Social Services (Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux) and Dr. Ralf Dadoun, Director – OPTILAB Project

Facilitator : Mr. François Drolet, Experienced Healthcare Executive, Roche Canada

10:00 to 10:20 A.M. | HEALTH BREAK

3.    10:20 to 10:55 a.m. | Toward INESSS 2.0. thanks to access to RAMQ’s data

Now that the National Institute of Health and Social Service Excellence (Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux, INESSS) has access to the data gathered by Quebec’s medical health insurance board (Régie de l'assurance maladie du Québec, RAMQ), what benefits have emerged? Could this be a minor revolution for the healthcare system, which now has access to information of primary importance for improving care trajectories? How will the analysis and use of this data impact the perception of industrial innovations? It is now possible to establish correlation between the use of certain technologies, for example, and their direct impacts on patients in near-real time. How will this measurement of innovations affect the industry and improve the care trajectory?

Speaker: Dr. Denis Roy, Vice-President – Clinical Science and Governance, (Sciences et Gouvernance Clinique), National Institute of Health and Social Service Excellence (Institut national d’excellence en santé et en services sociaux, INESSS)

Facilitator:  Mr. Patrick Hupé, Director of Corporate Affairs – Quebec-Atlantic provinces, Medtronic Canada

4.    10:55 to 11:30 a.m.| Health innovation bureau: Its role and objectives

Recognizing that the life sciences sector (especially medical technologies) has immense potential to contribute to the development of Quebec’s economy, Quebec’s new 2017-2027 Life Sciences Strategy, L’innovation prend vie (innovation comes to life) calls on the entire healthcare ecosystem to continue structuring research and development resources and the resources needed to validate and market innovations. This approach led to the creation of the health innovation bureau, which will operate directly at the health ministry and concretely foster dialogue between the healthcare system and industry. This strategic session will help us better understand the high-level collaboration targeted by the strategy.

Speaker: Ministry of Health and Social Services (Ministère de la Santé et des services sociaux)
Facilitator: Mr. Paul Lirette, CEO, GSK Canada

11:30 A.M. to 12:15 P.M.  | ROUND TABLE

After the major changes presented by the healthcare system stakeholders during the strategic sessions, the morning’s facilitators (all from the healthcare industry), accompanied by two patients, must identify two aspects that facilitate the use of new innovations to optimize the care trajectories offered to patients. They must also identify two difficulties that these programs create for the industry, to be addressed to the healthcare system stakeholders.  In addition to building bridges, we will be adopting a common language that day!

Speakers: Mr. François Drolet, Experienced Healthcare Executive, Roche Canada, Mr. Patrick Hupé, Director of Corporate Affairs – Quebec-Atlantic provinces, Medtronic Canada, Mr. Paul Lirette, CEO, GSK Canada, Mr. Vincent Dumez, director Centre of Excellence on Partnership with Patients and the Public and Mr. Pierre Blain, director, Provincial Commitee of patients

12:15 to 2:00 P.M. | COCKTAIL DINNER

2:00 to 5:00 P.M. | THEMATIC WORKSHOPS

Two workshops will be given simultaneously. You will be asked to choose one when you register for the Forum online.

Managing innovation in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry:
How to deal with change?

given by Norton Rose Fulbright

Health innovations and public understanding: The urgent need to close the gap 
given by BioQuébec and Génome Québec

In this era of digital upheavals and globalization where innovation is at the forefront of dynamic changes, those involved in the pharmaceutical and life sciences industry must adapt to these new realities. During this session, join us to learn more about the importance of healthcare issues for political parties, the impact of the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), clinical trials as well as privacy in the context of metadata.

Is it possible to successfully take a turn towards innovation in health without public support? For major international leaders, the answer is “no.” So what if our big challenge for coming years was to make ourselves understood?

This panel will assess how well the life sciences sector is faring when it comes to getting its message out.   Are we targeting the right audiences? Do we truly understand the importance of communication and the risk of not communicating? How can we use communications in a context of cultural change? Why is it so difficult to be heard? What does the media landscape look like in 2017?

Journalists and skilled public speakers will get together to share their understanding of the situation and discuss existing challenges to the successful and sustainable shift to innovation in health.

Panelists:

-       Pierre Lavoie, Cofounder and Vice President of the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie

-       Michel Rochon, Scientific Journalist

-       Étienne Crevier, President and CEO of BiogeniQ

Journalist Esther Bégin will be hosting the panel.
