Motivated by the future of care, we ask “What’s possible?” and pave the way for change. We want to know if something can be done better, safer, and most importantly, if it’s welcomed by the people who use it – whether it is a treatment, a process, or technology.


We support:

  • Quality improvement – testing and implementing innovative solutions
  • Clinical trials – evaluating new interventions


Scaling & Sharing Solutions

We believe in supporting the growth of Canadian health innovation and reducing barriers for other health care providers to adopt new solutions. Transparently sharing what works with industry partners and health institutions is a catalyst for iteration and growth of solutions that improve care and its delivery.


We support:

  • Scale and spread – prioritizing growth of innovative care solutions
