DRAFT AGENDA

The Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Applied Health Research (NLCAHR) has been asked by the Canadian Institutes for Health Research (CIHR) to organize a team-building workshop that will explore possibilities for local teams of IT/medtech entrepreneurs and healthcare researchers to apply for funding under a new CIHR program called the eHealth Innovation Partnership Program (eHIPP).

The eHealth Innovation Partnership Program (eHIPP) seeks to identify person-oriented eHealth solutions in two priority areas:

  • early identification of and interventions for youth with mental health conditions;
  • supporting seniors with complex care needs in their homes

It also designed to help emerging Canadian health technology companies to co-develop innovative eHealth solutions that deliver real-world health care value, and evaluate the clinical benefit and cost-effectiveness of existing eHealth products.

The eHIPP opportunity supports large-scale pragmatic trials in “innovation communities”, which are local/regional health care or community 'test beds' that have the capacity and interest to integrate eHealth innovations into real -world service delivery.

Industry Partners will:

  • Obtain financial assistance to offset your market validation costs;
  • Gain access to researchers and expertise;
  • Work with all partners to obtain a comparative clinical and cost analysis;
  • Have direct exposure to target markets; and
  • Receive expert advice and guidance on technology integration into the health services market.

Health System Partners/Researchers will:

  • Be a co-innovating leader of eHealth solutions to improve health for the future;
  • Build the foundations and partnerships for innovation in your community;
  • Partner with dynamic and innovative industries;
  • 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.
