TRANSFORM Care through Applied Research and Innovation

With our TRANSFORM pillar we are concentrating on advancing high quality applied research and innovation that provides tangible benefits for patients and providers, and enables the spread of community-based innovation through the following areas:

Establish research chairs to foster applied research and innovation aligned with our strategy

  • Continue to grow our research footprint through the growth and contribution of existing research teams and replacement of a research chair for Family and Community Medicine.

Enhance our research profile and funding

  • Continue to grow clinical trials in various clinical areas across North York General Hospital.
  • Advance the Health Databank Collaborative to ensure researchers have efficient access to data.
NYGH and over 80 community family doctors from the North York Family Health Team have been working on an ambitious project to pool their patient health data for research that will improve care for complex, high-risk patients.
