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 innovation ecosystem.
The HTF fosters partnerships between publicly funded health care 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 first health priority area for the HTF is Better Care Closer to Home, which supports technologies that deliver better coordinated and integrated care in the community, closer to home.
Intake for Problem Statement Intake Forms to the HTF from publicly funded health care service providers opened July 4, 2016.
Note: Applications for the HTF are now closed. The intake for Round 2 applications will begin in spring 2017.
