CAN Health Network Recognizes Top Canadian Health Care Organizations and Trailblazing Companies for Homegrown Innovation

Toronto, Ontario (November 3, 2021) – The Coordinated Accessible National (CAN) Health Network held its second Annual General Meeting (AGM) today where it announced five prestigious awards recognizing Canada’s leading health care organizations and companies in the following categories; Network, Edge of the Year, Company of the Year, Disruptor, and Procurement Awards. The virtual AGM was hosted and sponsored by Deloitte Canada.

“Today, we honoured the finest health care organizations and companies within our Network for their accomplishments in transforming health care in Canada,” said Dr. Dante Morra, Chair and Lead of the CAN Health Network. “We brought together over 200 leaders in the health care, technology, and business space to discuss the future of health care in Canada, and how our Network can continue to empower Canadian innovators and leverage winning domestic companies to secure Canada’s prosperity.”

The CAN Health Network is a federally-funded integrated market which reduces barriers to procurement so health-tech companies can quickly and easily bring their innovations to the healthcare sector. It serves as a platform for companies to provide solutions to meet the needs of Canadians and our healthcare organizations.

The awards are an opportunity to recognize what can be accomplished when you create a warm, receptive environment for Canadian technology and to honour significant achievements in innovation across the health care sector over the past year, against the backdrop of a global pandemic.

Awards were granted to the following recipients:

Precision ADM and Shared Health in Manitoba received CAN Health’s ‘Network Award’, the highest honour, recognizing the Edge and Company who leveraged the full scope of the Network and demonstrated considerable growth and success. They introduced North America’s first, 1st health care grade reusable N95 respirator – Precision AIR – and helped solve a Canada-wide shortage of PPE at the height of the pandemic.
