Call for innovation fund project applications

Better Care Victoria is calling for applications for innovation fund projects for 2019/20.

The innovation fund is an opportunity to partner with other services and consumers to develop and deliver care in new ways.

It has already funded 37 projects and is inviting applications for new or novel ways of improving the quality of, and access to, healthcare.

Focus areas for the 2019/20 innovation fund are:

•      Care beyond the hospital walls – joined up management of chronic disease and community mental health;

•      Quality and safety – shared decision making;

•      Digital health – application of a digital solution to address patient level challenges in the focus areas.

Applications open on March 18 and BCV is providing more guidance to help develop some truly innovative projects.
