Health care organizations big and small are challenged to adapt to the technological requirements of operating during a pandemic. Providers are also challenged with a growing and aging population, higher prevalence of chronic diseases, higher demand for multidisciplinary care and a complex and expensive process required to implement solutions.
The advent of digital and data-enabled technologies promises to create products that deliver more effective and patient-centered care. Harnessing the power of digital will unlock the full potential of Alberta’s health innovation capacity.
We recently launched ImplementAB.digH, a program aimed at supporting the adoption of digital health technologies in health delivery organizations. Applicants can be any organizations situated in Alberta providing a health service including government agencies, not for profits and private corporations.
ImplementAB.digH Program Highlights
• Projects are driven by healthcare delivery organizations interested in implementing digital health solutions with the potential for enhancing acceptability, accessibility, appropriateness, effectiveness and safety of care delivery
• The innovation must be market ready and regulatory approved where applicable
• Projects funded through ImplementAB.digH have a strong emphasis on plans for post-project sustainability
Alberta Innovates invests in digital health technology to improve the lives of Albertans. We look forward to hearing your great ideas.
