An innovation launch pad to help health care suppliers introduce new products to our Members
Mohawk Medbuy strongly believes that innovative products, services and processes are crucial to the future of health care in Canada. Our Innovation Program was developed in 2015 to provide vendors with a forum to introduce their latest advances to our membership.
We recognize that our Members have limited resources to assess new* technologies for clinical acceptability – as well as understand financial and operational benefits. Through the expertise of our Clinical and Pharmaceutical Teams, our insights assist Members in their decisions about technologies that improve quality of care and maximize the value they obtain from their finite resources.
Have an innovation? Let’s talk.
We encourage you to reach out to us at any time if you have an innovative product and/or service – including existing technologies with innovative practice change recommendations – that can positively affect:
Delivery of patient care
Safety of patients and health care providers
To quote the Council of Canadian Academies’ definition of innovation, we are looking for opportunities to support our Members by exploring “new or better ways of doing valued things.”
Our Review Process is Designed to Save our Members’ Time
Mohawk Medbuy follows a detailed process to review and assess new technologies or practice changes in partnership with our Members for consideration of establishing a new contract.
To be eligible for an Innovation contract, a product must meet the following criteria:
The product must be used in the clinical care of a patient;
The product must have Health Canada approval, if applicable;
The technology must be either new, or an improvement over existing technology within the same product category;
The product must demonstrate a measurable, incremental benefit to patient care – or the safety of patients or health care workers – compared to other products that are already available in the market.
Note – Software products and those requiring capital investment are out of scope for the Innovation Program.
*new refers to a product that has become available in the marketplace since we last ran a competitive bid for that product category
