Idea Fund for Health

Manitoba’s Idea Fund for Health launched January 29, 2020. The Fund will invest up to $40 million in three phases over the next four years.  Phase One will support projects that align with one or more of the key priorities of Manitoba’s Clinical and Preventive Services Plan including:

  • reducing variation in clinical practice;
  • building local capacity to manage chronic conditions and post-acute needs of patients, such as access to rehabilitation and remote monitoring programs; and
  • focusing on preventive measures to improve health outcomes and reduce the need for acute services.

Capital improvements, staff training, new or replacement equipment, and clinical practice changes are all eligible for consideration in the first wave, which will be managed by Shared Health.
