SPARK’s goal is to expedite, simplify and put in place repeatable, simplified processes to help innovators get their products to patients.
We are at the beginning of this journey with the SPARK program. Health Storylines will contribute to help ignite healthcare innovation in Ontario.
SPARK is a pathway. SPARK does not develop digital health solutions: it helps those who do. SPARK is a collaborative partnership among the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, eHealth Ontario, MaRS Discovery District, and University Health Network (UHN). Working with innovators, this partnership brings together leaders who share a common vision to stimulate consumer digital health innovation for Ontario. SPARK makes it easier for digital health innovators to safely and securely flow provincial health information into the hands of patients and their health service providers.
