Health Innovation Portal


The Health Council launched the Health Innovation Portal in November 2012 to highlight innovations that were contributing to a higher-quality health care system. Notable features of the portal included a searchable database with more than 400 innovative practices covering a range of health care themes, a user-friendly search function, and customizable outputs for a range of health system stakeholders, including health care analysts, planners, managers, providers and policy-makers.

  • With the closing of the Health Council of Canada in March 2014, content from the Health Innovation Portal has been added to Accreditation Canada’s Leading Practices Database and will continue to be publicly available.
  • In developing the Health Innovation Portal, the Health Council of Canada developed the Innovative Practices Evaluation Framework  and the IPEF Rating Guide to provide a transparent and consistent guide to the evaluation of innovative health care practices, programs, services and policies.
  • Practice descriptions for the more than 400 innovative practices in the Health Innovation Portal as of January 2014 have also been archived by theme and are available here:
