WHAT IS HEALTHBOUND?

 

Four hospitals in the GTA have identified key clinical challenges that we believe can be addressed by innovative Canadian companies and individuals.

HealthBound convenes startups, clinicians, and hospitals across the GTA with government and private organizations to develop solutions to these challenges.  Our goal is to perfect problem-solution fit, adapting products and processes to benefit hospitals, improve patient outcomes and streamline clinical practice.

HealthBound's value is three-fold:

  1. Ubiquitous, Thematic Challenges. Four hospitals in the GTA have identified common problems, meaning solutions will be high impact across the hospitals and, more broadly, the Canadian healthcare system.
  2. Focus on Clinical Validation. Canada's leadership in clinical evaluation helps startups attract more funding, pushes them towards market readiness in the U.S., and stimulates potential for procurement within Canadian hospitals. 
  3. Cross-Domain Mentorship. With comprehensive domain expertise, from procurement and health IT to clinical trials and regulatory strategy, participants have access to all resources they need to be successful.

How it works


How it works


HOW IT WORKS

In April 2017, we brought together four collaborating hospitals, startups and SMEs, government, and other partners to explore ubiquitous clinical challenges and see how we might solve them together. We selected the top 9 startups to work with us over four months, refining their technology to the champion hospital’s needs.

Following this Rapid Development Phase, the HealthBound startups will pitch their final product during Demo Night, sharing how they’ve refined their product to meet the needs of the hospital.

The winning company will be granted membership to the Biomedical Zone, gaining access to  clinical validation support, business services, network, and facilities, as well as a cash prize.
