If we are to be truly successful, our health system must innovate and collaborate.

Southern Innovation Challenge has been a major catalyst for staff to bring ideas forward for support and funding over the previous five years and, continues to be one way of engaging, to receive ideas.

For the first time this year, entry is open to the whole Southern Health System – both our own DHB services as well as non-government organisations (NGO’s) and primary care. We encourage and will look favorably on applications received from partnerships or groups formed for the purposes of demonstrating innovation that promotes collaboration and/or integration across the system, as per the goals of the Draft Southern Primary and Community Care Strategy.
