About me

Fredrika Scarth is a 2019–20 Canadian Harkness Fellow in Health Care Policy and Practice.

As Director of the Secretariat on Improving Healthcare and Ending Hallway Medicine in the Ontario Ministry of Health, Fredrika works with a special advisor and council reporting directly to the premier of Ontario and ministers of health and long-term care, with a broad mandate to make strategic recommendations to government that will shape the future directions of health care in the province, including structural and other reforms to support greater integration in health care delivery.

She has previously held senior roles within the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, leading the design and implementation of provincial programs focused on improving patient outcomes and experience and addressing system costs, including integrated service delivery in rural areas and bundled payment for acute and postacute care.

She has led clinical and expert panel processes and acted as a decision-maker partner on international research grants focused on integrated care, transitions in care, and avoidable hospitalization.

Fredrika received her Ph.D. in political theory from the University of Toronto, her M.A. in political science from the University of Toronto, and a B.A. in political science from McGill University.
