Southlake Regional Health Centre has a long history of engaging with innovators. The OBIO® EAHN™ program has allowed us to ‘up our game’ with access to pre-vetted, commercial ready Canadian technologies – letting us focus on completing the type of value-based analysis that supports future procurement. We see this approach as the kind of win-win that benefits patients both here and around the world.

Leveraging the positive results from the OBIO® EAHN™ evaluation allows us to make final technology enhancements in our home market – where our R&D and manufacturing facility reside. Having local customers who become adoption champions is key to successfully accessing the global marketplace.
