The needs of the health care system are changing rapidly, and so too are the technologies that exist to improve the accuracy and level of care medical practitioners require to make concise, life-saving diagnoses and treatments for patients in Atlantic Canada.
To further drive innovation in the medtech space, Volta, Nova Scotia Health, BioNova, QEII Foundation, and the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency, have formed a strategic partnership to present the Health Challenge, a series of five pitch events focusing on specific health care priorities. Medtech companies participating in the competition will present their technologies that aim to solve various priorities pre-determined by Nova Scotia Health.
The winner of the pitch event will receive $100,000, and their innovative technology will be considered for adoption by Nova Scotia Health.
The second Health Challenge Pitch Event will be taking place virtually on October 2, beginning at 12pm, and will focus on mental health and wellness.
