About WIN

The World Health Innovation Network (WIN) is based at the Odette School of Business at the University of Windsor, under the leadership of world renowned researcher Dr. Anne Snowdon. WIN brokers partnerships between key stakeholders to source, embed and scale innovations in health systems. WIN develops the evidence of impact and scalability across health systems and disseminates this information to accelerate health system transformation, drive economic growth and improve patient outcomes.

 

WIN’s mandate is achieved through three lines of business:

  1. Research Demonstration Projects – because innovation takes collaboration

Establishing innovation demonstration projects that source, embed and scale innovations in health systems with partners from industry, health systems, government and academia.

  1. Education – because innovation takes leadership

Educating the current and future health leaders to design, scope and lead implementation of innovation, identify barriers and opportunities and ultimately scale innovations that transform health systems.

  1. Knowledge Generation – because innovation takes new thinking

Developing new knowledge and spreading the lessons of innovation with our global networks to achieve sustainable, higher-quality, patient-centred health systems.
