Chaired by Wendy Thomson, the expert panel is also composed of Roger Paquet and Pierre Shedleur. The panel is charged with making recommendations to implement patient-based funding and identify concrete initiatives where this funding model will apply.

More specifically, the expert panel is mandated to:

  • formulate recommendations to implement patient-based funding with the goal of improving health care quality, accessibility and efficiency. The expert panel will have to identify the terms for the introduction of the apporach and the conditions of its implementation;
  • identify practical initiatives from the health and social services network where this funding approach will be applied according to well-established criteria;
  • financially support implementation and assist the selected institutions to ensure objectives are achieved.
