This program supports the integration and application of high quality, relevant research and innovation in the health system. In alignment with the strategic goals of the Alberta Health Research and Innovation Strategy, the vision is to support innovation to improve the quality of life of Albertans. The overarching goal of PRIHS is to support innovation activities that will contribute to achieving a sustainable health system in Alberta. PRIHS combines the expertise of researchers, clinicians, managers, patients, policy-makers and other stakeholders to transform and improve healthcare delivery and patient outcomes.
- Each proposal must involve at least two SCNs in the development and implementation of the evidence informed solution
- Every proposal submitted to AIHS must be a direct result of the application development and review process conducted by AHS (i.e. Phase I, see Application Development and Review Process for more information)
- Each eligible application will include:
- Lead and/or Co-Lead applicants who have their primary appointment with an Alberta-based institution
- The leadership of each SCN involved in delivering the solution must endorse the full application
- At least one senior operational official involved in the implementation of the proposal (i.e. responsible for resources needed to deliver care and ability to make impact on processes related to patient care) must endorse the full application
The guiding principle is that PRIHS funding should be used primarily to implement, scale, and spread innovation, and support activities that could not reasonably be covered by existing resources. Funding can be used for costs associated with the proposed activities.
Deadline: Currently closed. Future deadline to be determined.
