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. HTF is a program of the Government of Ontario’s Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist (OCHIS), administered by the Ontario Centres of Excellence. OCHIS’ mandate is to strengthen Ontario’s health innovation ecosystem.
HTF fosters partnerships between publicly funded health 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 HTF is Better Care Closer to Home, which supports technologies that deliver better coordinated and integrated care in the home and community.
Projects must be led by a publicly funded health service provider and include a Problem Statement that supports Pre-Market Evaluation or Early Adoption of an innovative technology.
Please note that applications to this program are currently closed.
