Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation

About Us

Utilizing evidence-based methods to optimize health care systems

In 2009, the Federal Government, through Industry Canada, invested $5 million into the creation of the Ivey International Centre for Health Innovation. We are a Centre of Excellence located within the Ivey Business School at Western University. Since our inception we have been an objective 3rd party academic centre, working to take proven health sector innovations and implement them into the system using evidence-based methods.

Brokering Value-Based Innovation

Core to the Centre’s mission is brokering relationships that spur innovation and foster a collaborative process to ensure the successful implementation and sustainable adoption of innovative ideas, processes, models and technologies. The Centre is ideally situated to broker value-based innovation within the province of Ontario, Canada and abroad.

Building off of Ivey’s mission to, “develop business leaders who think globally, act strategically, and contribute to the societies in which they operate”, the Centre is ideally positioned to lead a value-based, health care system transformation.


To be a leader in the research, education and knowledge dissemination of value-based health care management, and to act as the hub for health care management research at the Ivey Business School.
