m-Health Solutions is a Canadian healthcare technology company that has been focused on the health and well-being of Canadians since 2010. It’s what we do. It’s who we are. It’s why we strive to improve and grow.  We are fortunate to partner with organizations such as Hamilton Health Sciences who operate the same way. It’s through these partnerships that we’ve achieved our latest success.

We are extremely proud to be featured in a recent article from Canadian Healthcare Technology. On January 10, 2018 the most recent round of grants through the Health Technologies Fund was announced.  Out of the 12 projects to receive funding, m-Health Solutions and Hamilton Health Sciences’ project (#4 on the list) on the REdireCT TAVI: Remote ECG Monitoring to Reduce Complications following Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantations was a recipient.

This grant will allow us to continue this life-saving technology development which will allow us to continue Testing a new digital monitoring tool that could shorten the amount of time patients need to spend in the hospital following transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR).

“The investments were selected for their potential to improve patient outcomes and bring value to the healthcare system. Twelve grants were awarded ranging from about $294,000 to $500,000 each, totaling $5.5 million.

The $20-million Health Technologies Fund is developed and funded by the Office of the Chief Health Innovation Strategist (OCHIS) and administered by the Ontario Centres of Excellence.

Each Health Innovation Team includes at least one provider of publicly funded healthcare services and at least one technology company with a research and development or manufacturing presence in Ontario. The next call for applications for the Health Technologies Fund will be announced in early 2018.

“Ontario has a wealth of innovators looking to connect with clinicians and patients to find new ways of delivering better care, closer to home. The job of my office, and the purpose of the Health Technologies Fund, is to help spark that demand-driven innovation and get it embedded into our health system quickly,” said William Charnetski (pictured), Chief Health Innovation Strategist for Ontario. “The fund is part of our value-based innovation framework that has three clear goals: improve patient outcomes, optimize the impact of our investment in health innovation and scale promising Ontario companies.”
