The author reflects on the need to adopt new approaches to properly evaluate and share the successes and failures of health care pilot projects in Canada. The author cites that Canada has been regarded as a country of perpetual pilot projects but the outcome of the initiatives has been rarely disseminated. The author suggests the need to create a publicly accessible registry to provide information on the projects and mechanisms to discuss the best practices and project outcomes.
