To accelerate smart ideas, products and services to improve health outcomes.
We provide DHB innovators with advice on product and service ideas to bring them to reality. We identify and develop innovations and ideas for the benefit of the New Zealand health system.
The New Zealand Health Innovation Hub is owned by Canterbury DHB, has its own board and management structure.
We also receive support from the Ministry of Business Innovation and Employment as a pooling member with KiwiNet, and from the Ministry of Health. NZHIH is accessible to all DHBs for commercialisation services support and as a vehicle for holding equity in ventures on behalf of DHBs.
