About US

The CAN Health Network is a national partnership comprised of leading Canadian health organizations, referred to as Edges, and companies across Canada. The Network works together to introduce new solutions into the health care system, and pave the way for Canadian businesses to scale not only across Canada, but globally.

How It Works

The Edges identify market-ready needs for the Network and the best suited companies are selected and paired with an Edge who provides them with multi-level support to ensure optimal product market-fit. A national competitive procurement process is then launched where all of the Network’s members can procure the solution without having to repeat the process.

1

Edges compile a list of user-defined needs in their organizations for which they would be ready to procure the solution.

2

Promising Canadian health-tech products that could address the needs are then identified and placed on-site at the Edges.

3

The Edges provide full access to their resources for the companies to implement their product and adjust as necessary over the course of 3 to 12 months.

4

Once product market value and readiness are demonstrated, the Edge can procure the product through a competitive process.

5

The outcomes of the commercialization project are shared with the entire national Network, who are also able to procure the solution nationally without needing to repeat the procurement process.
