Health Innovation

Innovation and partnerships are critical for the long-term sustainability of B.C.’s health care system. The B.C. Ministry of Health and its partners are working to advance new and effective ideas to support a sustainable and innovative health care system. A system-wide approach will improve both clinical and administrative practices to better meet the needs of patients and providers.

Innovative approaches will be needed to support the health and wellness of all in British Columbia at both an individual and population level. The Ministry has established an innovation intake process to consider new innovations and approaches for additional supports and possible spread within B.C's health authorities.
