Today, more than ever before the medical technology (MedTech) industry is having an incredible impact on health care. With the ability to improve both access and quality of care while reducing costs, health care organizations are adopting new technologies, driving a massive global med-tech industry. Composed of Canada’s leading health care organizations, industry and thought leadership, the network represents one of the largest health and industry partnerships in the country.

CAN Health Network will enable MedTechcompanies to work with health care providers in a real environment, make any necessary adjustments, and ensure their products deliver for patients, providers and all Canadians. With support from the Government of Canada, the CAN Health Network will enable health care organizations to work directly with MedTechcompanies to ensure the technology being adopted by Canadian health care organizations is built here at home, by Canadian companies with our medical leaders.
