The Health Technologies Fund (HTF) supports the development of made-in-Ontario health technologies by accelerating evaluation, procurement, adoption and diffusion in the Ontario health system. The fund is part of the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist’s mandate to strengthen Ontario’s health innovation ecosystem.
The HTF fosters partnerships between publicly-funded healthcare service providers, patients, academia and industry to drive collaboration that improves patient outcomes, adds value to the health system and creates jobs in Ontario.
Through the fund, the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist sets health priorities to focus innovation to address specific health outcomes. The health priority area for the HTF is Better Care Closer to Home, which supports technologies that deliver better coordinated and integrated care in the home and community.
OCE is accepting Expressions of Interest (EOIs) for projects until June 21, 2017. Projects must be led by a publicly-funded healthcare service provider and include a Problem Statement that supports Pre-Market Evaluation or Early Adoption of an innovative technology.
