The SPOR Rewarding Success Initiative was designed to produce interventions that will result in cost savings and/or improved efficiencies in Canada’s health care system. This initiative is similar to other funding models that have been developed to support innovation and impact, such as risk sharing, social impact bonds, and innovation prizes.
The Rewarding Success Initiative is a multi-phased experimental funding model that is being piloted in five provinces: British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland & Labrador.
- Coordinated primary and community care:
- Complex medical care and/or supports for frail patients (including people living with dementia)
- Complex mental health and/or substance use
- Improved access to surgical services (perioperative services)
- Consideration for accessibility of services in rural, remote, First Nations communities
- Innovative health technologies to facilitate patient-centered, team-based care, and to enable secure access to health care services and information
The main principle of Rewarding Success is that teams will identify and implement potential solutions to problems and priorities in health care that will enhance the experience of patients and healthcare providers while also:
- reducing low value health care (e.g. unnecessary diagnostic tests/ drugs),
- addressing health care inefficiencies (e.g. wait lists),
- reducing avoidable morbidity (e.g. stroke)
