The Health Technologies Fund (HTF) supports the development of made-in-Ontario health technologies by accelerating evaluation, procurement, adoption and diffusion in the Ontario health system. This workshop will provide an overview of the Round 3 Expression of Interest (EOI) application development process.
This is a good opportunity to get an understanding of the further focus to the selected health priority area: "Better Care Closer to Home" and types of projects to be supported through this round.
- Client & Care Team Communication – Develop or adopt solutions that change how clients and caregivers communicate with their care team. Projects should have capabilities including, but not limited to: secure communication; viewing and scheduling appointments; and, enabling access to information such as care plans and assessment results.
- Continuity of Care Provider - Develop or adopt an existing logistics and routing tool that allows home and community care providers to better match staff skills, competencies and availability with client needs. The solution should enable improved continuity of providers on a client’s care team. The tool could include functions that support transportation and other services for clients in the community.
- Supporting Clients to Live Independently – Support the development and adoption of solutions that enable older adults and home care clients to age in place and live independently. This can include devices and/or solutions that assist with activities of daily living, such as personal hygiene, locomotion, and eating.
