Health innovation done differently
Canada faces a health-care crisis with escalating costs, shortage of health care professionals, and increasing needs from a diverse and aging population. The Transformative Health Technologies initiative is responding to these challenges and ready to unpack the complexity of where these critical issues meet to transform health technologies to touch, know and connect us.
We’re transforming health and we’re not doing it alone. Our partnership with NOSM University is helping us expand our impact in remote, rural, and Indigenous communities. Collaborations with industry partners are enabling our researchers to innovate with purpose and bring technological solutions to market.
Our greatest impact happens together. Let’s get started.
