Digital Health Canada member MEDIC at Mohawk College recently celebrated the successful wrap up of its Innovation Lab project, a multi-year applied research collaboration with Ontario Health.
Innovation Lab, which was hosted at innovation-lab.ca and launched in May 2016, was a sandbox environment that provided the necessary tools, APIs, developer portals, and specifications for digital health developers to work through a significant part of their research and product development in a secure, cost-effective manner. Available online for almost four years, the Innovation Lab became a multi-jurisdictional Canadian digital health success story, attracting users from 220 organizations, with over 1,500 site visits each month.
MEDIC, an applied research centre based at Hamilton’s Mohawk College, is a federally funded Technology Access Centre. They provide specialized R&D support in Digital Health to Canadian businesses and government partners.
