eHealth Innovations Partnership Program
Calling all health care innovation communities!
The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) eHealth Innovations Partnership Program (eHIPP) is recruiting health care innovation communities!
eHIPP is a collaborative funding program designed to create a new generation of cost-effective patient and population-centred health care by codeveloping innovative ehealth solutions in partnership with Canadian technology companies that have the potential to deliver real-world health care value.
eHIPP will support large-scale pragmatic trials in “health care innovation community test beds,” which are local/regional health care organizations or communities that have the capacity and interest to integrate ehealth innovations into real-world service delivery (e.g. hospitals, communities, school boards and postsecondary institutions).
What kind of organizations/communities would benefit most?
Health care innovation communities that wish to provide novel ehealth-enabled health care programs for:
- early identification of and intervention for youth with mental health conditions; or
- support for seniors with complex care needs in their homes.
Health care innovation communities could be set in:
- community-hospital/home networks
- academic health care centres
- regional health authorities
- college/university campuses
Benefits: Why apply?
- Be a co-innovating leader of ehealth solutions to improve health for the future;
- Build the foundations and partnerships for health care innovation in your community;
- Partner with dynamic and innovative companies;
- Improve the direct quality of care and outcomes for target populations; and
- Receive financial assistance, expert advice and guidance on integrating technology into health services.
Who is eligible?
Health care innovation communities that include the following:
- a scientific lead (an independent researcher);
- a clinical lead (a health care delivery professional);
- a decision maker to support adoption and scaleup of ehealth-enabled innovation services;
- end-users such as patients, families, caregivers and health professionals; and
- IT infrastructure to support the integration of ehealth solutions.
