Nova Scotia Health’s Innovation Hub is leading research and innovation within the healthcare system to deliver high-impact solutions for patients and providers. It’s a catalyst for bringing about positive system change to enhance access and improve health outcomes. 

As one provincial organization, Nova Scotia Health is well positioned to both lead and partner on health-related innovation initiatives. Our province is the perfect size to test and try innovative ways of delivering care using new technologies and treatments. We are large enough to have the resources and infrastructure in place, yet small enough to be nimble and adaptable to implement new and innovative ways of doing things – for the benefit of patients and their families. 

We have a wonderful community of entrepreneurs and innovators who are keen to create solutions for Nova Scotians, along with the incredible expertise and dedication of leading clinicians and researchers. Through strategic partnerships with these clinical champions, industry, healthcare foundations, governments and academic partners, the Innovation Hub is transforming healthcare through the best available evidence and innovative solutions. 

This single point of entry allows innovators, clinical teams, researchers, patients and families, students, partners, and investors to come together to discover and implement innovative healthcare solutions for Nova Scotians that have impact regionally, nationally, and beyond, and contribute directly to our local economy.

Nova Scotia Health’s Innovation Hub has four areas: Research, Innovation, Implementation Science, and Interprofessional Practice and Learning.
