The AHS Innovation Pipeline defines at 5-step process that guides early, rigorous and ongoing testing of innovations through various stages of implementation in partnership with researchers, patients and health care teams. This process provides the evidence needed to safely move good ideas into action while driving long term sustainability of AHS as a learning health system.
Providing evidence synthesis, critical analysis and an Alberta perspective, Health Evidence Reviews support decision-makers by evaluating innovations (technologies, services, models of care), their impacts, and corresponding changes in health policy that might be needed to solve health challenges and optimize health service delivery on a provincial scale. Reviews align with strategic priorities and provide a pathway to action. Funding for Health Evidence Reviews is provided by Alberta Health.

HIIS funding supports provincial implementation, spread and scale of solutions that address priority health system challenges and have proven impact and value (i.e., positive health outcomes, return on investment, or social impacts) based on evidence from research projects or pilot studies. HIIS funding is a partnership between Alberta Health and AHS.
