The Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization (OBIO®) today released its latest report, ‘Achieving Impact Through Adoption of Innovative Health Technologies: Establishing Early Adopter Health Organizations as an Accelerator for Economic Growth in Ontario’, which describes an early adopter model to facilitate the evaluation and adoption of innovative health technologies in Ontario health organizations.
Composed of a series of four guides, the OBIO Talent Toolkit stems from the success of the OBIO Health to Business Bridge (H2BB™) program which addresses an expressed need for more talent in the health science industry.
OBIO’s report, Realizing the Promise of Health Care Innovation: Increasing Value for the Patient, Health System and Economy, was published in 2013 and is a product of the Ontario Bioscience Economic Strategy Team (OBEST®), an initiative launched by OBIO to address the challenges faced by Ontario’s human health technology and bioscience industry.
