Health Technologies Fund

The Health Technologies Fund (HTF) supports the early evaluation, procurement and adoption of home-grown innovative technologies in Ontario's health care system. The HTF fosters partnerships between publicly-funded healthcare service providers, patients, academia and industry to drive collaboration that improves patient outcomes, adds value to the health system and creates jobs in Ontario. The HTF is part of the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist's mandate to strengthen Ontario's innovation ecosystem. It will set specific health care priorities in line with the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care's Patients First: Action Plan for Health Care. Through the fund, the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist identifies health priorities to focus innovation to address specific health outcomes. The health priority area for the HTF is Better Care Closer to Home, which supports technologies that deliver better coordinated and integrated care in the home and community.

The Health Technologies Fund is being delivered by Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) on behalf of the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist. For more information visit: Health Technologies Fund.

The first 15 successful recipients of the HTF can be found here.

The second round for HTF applications is now closed with recipients announced in October. More information on the application process can be found here.

The Health Technologies Fund does not support medicines, vaccines, and drug efficacy research initiatives.

By investing in health technologies and processes, the HTF will have a positive impact on the economy as it supports the creation of new companies and jobs in Ontario.
