What is Innovation?
Innovation is the discovery and implementation of new solutions or improvements to an existing problem and which are impactful and provide value to the healthcare system. Innovations can be in the form of products, services, programs, and/or processes and do not have to be a commercially-viable product or make a profit.
Innovation Ambassadors Program
The Innovation Ambassadors Program aims to create an interconnected and supportive community of innovators, who are able to respond to problems within the health care system. Comprised of innovators from the four partner institutions, this program aims to identify and act upon regional health and health care problems, connect with a diverse audience of industry and community partners, and forge partnerships with other innovators in regional ecosystems across Canada and internationally.
