At Eastern Health, we want to generate ideas. We want to test ideas. Innovation is about improving outcomes for our patients. It is about having a meaningful impact on their lives, quality of care and quality of life.
We want to create products with our private sector strategic innovation partners that can be sold into the broader market where there is revenue potential and job opportunities in research and development. Along with our partners in the innovation ecosystem, Eastern Health is well-positioned as a leader in health-care innovation.
Eastern Health is a Living Lab – or user-centred innovation space. As a Living Lab we will harness innovative solutions to improve life for our patients, our health system and our province.
Eastern Health’s innovation strategy, ‘Innovating Together,’ provides further details about our mission and goals, and will help to guide the organization in developing our identity as a Living Lab. Please see our frequently asked questions for more information.
