eHealth Innovations: empowering patients, enabling better health care

The eHealth Initiative aims to develop, integrate, and evaluate eHealth innovations that will improve the cost-effectiveness of patient and population-centred care. The initiative will facilitate partnerships between technology industries and health system players, researchers and end-users such as patients/families and clinicians to create innovative approaches to health care delivery that will improve outcomes and patient experience in priority areas, and increase Canada's competitive position in the health-related information communication technology (ICT) industry. The eHealth Innovation initiative (eHII) will use an integrated science approach that incorporates consideration of ethical, legal and social implications.

Conditions for success:

The eHealth Innovation initiative (eHII) is co-led by the Institutes of Health Services and Policy Research (IHSPR) and Aging (IA) in collaboration with the Institutes of:

  • Neuroscience, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA)
