ACC Innovation Fund

Kia ora,

I know that it’s an incredibly busy time for you, your members and your organisations and we appreciate all the work you’re doing to support all of us in these challenging times.

Despite these challenging times, we continue to focus on working with the health sector to improve outcomes and experiences for people recovering from injury. Which is why I’m pleased to share with you an exciting opportunity that will support and reward innovative ways of achieving this.

Our 2021/2022 Innovation Fund is here and we’re looking to partner with health innovators that have great ideas to help injured people recover faster.

We have up to $100,000 (ex GST) for innovative health services initiatives that could focus on either service design, systems, technology, equity, or improvements to a current process or clinical pathway.

The initiative could be introducing new or more efficient pathways of care, improving access to services, or a current process. It could be a technology solution that provides insights into services our clients receive. It could be a new package of care that can be tailored around our clients to achieve their best outcome.

The scope of the Innovation Fund is wide because we know there are a range of ideas in the sector on how to improve outcomes for injured people. 

Registration of Interest opens on Friday 4 February 2022 and closes on Thursday 24 February 2022.

More information about the Innovation Fund and how to apply can be found on our Innovation Fund webpage.

This is an exciting opportunity, and I would appreciate your help to promote this to your members. If you’re happy to support and promote this to your members, below is a possible message from ACC for you to use.

Our social media campaign started on Tuesday 8 February. Below are the links to our posts to share on your own profiles if you wish to do so.
