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.

The report is the result of a series of consultations with executive-level stakeholders from Ontario health organizations and industry, as well as representatives from government and other affiliate organizations.

Following a key recommendation in OBIO's report, ?Tackling the Anchor Company Challenge ? OBIO Leadership Summit (2017),' which highlighted the need for early adopter organizations in Ontario, the report provides a robust model for establishing, governing and supporting these organizations to best engage with innovators.

The report was launched at the Conference Board of Canada, Council on Innovation Procurement in Health Care meeting. OBIO CEO, Gail Garland, was joined by Arden Krystal, President and CEO of the Southlake Regional Health Centre, Jo-anne Marr, President & CEO of Markham Stouffville Hospital and Stefano Picone, Director of Finance of Conavi Medical.

"Today, it is clearer than ever that a model to support the early adoption of novel technologies is crucial if our health science industry is going to continue to commercialize life-saving products, create jobs and attract investment in Ontario. We are pleased to present the EAHN model as a way to achieve these benefits," said Gail Garland, President and CEO, OBIO.
