Overview: Healthcare Innovations
Many rural communities face health care challenges that are different than what their regional and urban counterparts face across the province. Rural community members have developed innovations to overcome inequities resulting from as geographical isolation and limited resources.
“Innovations” can be defined as: “Any model, program, initiative, approach, or work-around that contributes to the success and/or improvement of the community as a whole.” An innovation can be as simple as building a community garden in front of the hospital, to subsidizing a bus service that helps rural patients affordably travel out-of-town for healthcare appointments.
By sharing each innovation, we hope that communities can learn from each other’s successes, cross-pollinate ideas, and form new connections with each other.
