InnovateXchange was developed with input from healthcare providers and administrators, industry partners and entrepreneurs, academics and researchers, and policy makers. This tool was created by the International Centre for Health Innovation at the Ivey Business School, Western University and represents what we heard from you – it is an open platform for sharing and learning about innovation in health care, with searchable, sharable data and lots of opportunity for interaction among users. Collaboration and partnership inspires the impossible and the Centre hopes you can use this tool to do just that.
InnovateXchange lets you browse existing innovative ideas, post your own, and brings you into contact with other innovators so you can ask questions and provide new ideas.
This unique tool was built on the belief that if we can harness our collective experiences, creativity and diversity, we can tackle some of our system’s biggest challenges. By leveraging the power of crowdsourcing, we will bring forth innovations that can drive changes needed to meet the health system demands of today and tomorrow.
Once an idea is populated to the platform, there is room for comments, suggestions, conversation and collaboration. InnovateXchange is designed to accommodate ideas that span the innovation life cycle, from ideas to research to deployment to impact.
