How do companies engage with health organizations to enable rapid development and deployment of disruptive technologies? The Health Ecosphere Innovation Pipeline aims to transform health through continuous innovation. The process was conceived in 2012, with a $15.5-million investment from FedDev Ontario to support the Connected Health and Wellness Project. The project created 122 new jobs, 16 new partnerships and 27 spinoff collaborations. In 2016, FedDev made a new $15-million investment was made to create Health Ecosphere: An Innovation Pipeline for Commercial Health Solutions. This initiative is a collaboration between York University, Southlake Regional Health Centre, and VentureLabs. In 2017, Hamilton Health Sciences and St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton were invited to participate with companies to develop solutions to address challenges including, but not limited to: connected and coordinated care, chronic disease management, big data analytics, and personalized medicine. We are excited to host a discussion with Pat Clifford, Niusha Barmala and Alex Muggah, regarding the development and future directions of Health Ecosphere. Health leaders, professionals and innovators are encouraged to attend.
