Using Innovation to Protect Canadians and Secure our Economy (PHC)

VANCOUVER, April 20, 2020 /CNW/ – The Digital Technology Supercluster (the “Supercluster”) is supporting Canadians in the fight against COVID-19. The Supercluster is investing $60 million to deliver solutions to some of the biggest health and safety problems created by COVID-19.

Four weeks ago, the Supercluster invited its network of over 500 organizations to submit ideas and proposals to address COVID-19 issues. Canadian companies responded, with over 300 submissions currently under review.

The Supercluster has also worked with its Members and project teams to deploy some of its earlier projects to solve COVID-19 problems. For example, Careteam Technologies is enabling the delivery of precision health while empowering patients, and Providence Health Care is ensuring Canadians have access to the best tools for early diagnosis of disease, regardless of where they live.
