What is HealthEDGE?
HealthEDGE is an innovation CHALLEGE intended to give health[care] an edge.It was born from a need to catalyze more ideas around real and current problems with the health-care system to fuel the massive health science innovation engine that has been created in the GTA.

Our Road-map to Sparking Innovation:
YOU can help improve the patient experience! What are the missing gaps? What are the problem devices? What has become to old? Too cumbersome? Tell innovators what needs to be innovated!
From problems to prototypes, ideas need to be generated, refined and tested. Help students, entrepreneurs and other innovators brainstorm and test their ideas. HealthEDGE includes a series of workshops & JAMS to help SPAKE ideas.
With actual problems and selected ideas, now all that remains is to make something new or better that can solve the “need”. HealthEDGE helps innovators develop their innovations for presentation at the UofT Health Innovation Day.
