The Ivey Centre for Health Innovation and Leadership is dedicated to identifying, assessing and being a catalyst for the commercialization and adoption of innovative technologies, systems and processes that will make real change for health care providers, patients and the health-care system.
The Government of Canada, through Industry Canada, has provided $5 Million of seed funding over five years for the Centre as a part of its Science and Technology strategy that aims to improve Canada's long-term competitiveness and quality of life.
The Ivey Centre is committed to addressing Canada's so-called "innovation deficit" in health care and the persistent lack of highly-trained and skilled managers in the health care industry - in both the private-sector and in our publicly funded health care institutions - able to commercialize innovation or effectively implement new systems and management processes.
