ITAC Health and the Ontario Centres of Excellence are conducting a webinar to inform members about the AdvancingHealth Program. The webinar will be held on June 24, 2014 at 3PM ET.
The AdvancingHealth Program, managed by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE), is designed to bolster innovation in Ontario’s public healthcare sector by matching healthcare needs with innovative products and services through partnerships between public healthcare organizations, companies and academic institutions. The aim is to advance healthcare innovation directed to improved health outcomes, enhanced patient experience and efficient use of resources through investments in collaborative demonstration projects that show clear potential for scaling-up to the system-level and establish a strong case for adoption.
The theme of the current call for proposals is ICT / Mobile Applications with impact on one or more of Acute Care, Community Care, or Mental Health. Technologies to be demonstrated must be market-ready and fully commercializable. All companies with a product-development presence in Ontario are eligible to apply in partnership with at least one Ontario public healthcare delivery organization. Projects may request up to $250,000 from OCE to reimburse costs of the demonstration project – the OCE contribution must be matched by the project partners with an equivalent amount of cash and in-kind contributions (minimum 25% cash).
This webinar is free to ITAC members.
