The Accelerate project stream is designed to test new initiatives to health care delivery through information technology, with proven value for clinicians and patients, as well as to inform potential future initiatives undertaken by Infoway or others. Eligible Accelerate projects will focus on a defined set of areas where there is good potential for benefit, but use in Canada is currently nil to localized.
The value of solutions in the focus areas may have already been proven in other contexts (e.g. in limited local testing or in a research project conducted outside of Canada). But, understanding how well the idea would work in a Canadian context and/or what approach(es) would work best is now required.
Investments may be a combination of demonstration, workflow/benefits optimization and benefits evaluation projects. As with previous innovation and adoption investments, it is the goal of Infoway that at least 25 per cent of Accelerate projects demonstrate replication, spread, and/or shared learnings that can be applied in other settings.
Please note: Infoway is not accepting proposals at this time for new Accelerate projects.
