Health Innovation

Queensland Health is actively involved in the Queensland Government’s Advance Queensland initiative, a comprehensive suite of programs, based on international evidence of 'what works', designed to create the knowledge-based jobs of the future.

The programs will drive innovation, build on our natural advantages, and help raise Queensland’s profile as an attractive investment destination, including in the health sector.

Advance Queensland will position Queensland as a place where entrepreneurs, industry, universities and government collaborate to turn great ideas into commercial products and businesses that create jobs.

For more information on the $650 million Accelerating Advance Queensland initiative and how it is supporting entrepreneurs and startups, investors, small business, industry and researchers, please visit the Advance Queensland website. 

Queensland Health is managing two programs under Advance Queensland:

  • The Queensland Genomics Health Alliance, a $25 million investment over five years to understand how genomics can improve healthcare and health outcomes for Queenslanders.
  • Integrated Care Innovation Fund, a $35 million investment in partnerships between the Hospital and Health Services and Primary Health Networks that generate new ideas for better integration of care, address fragmentation in services and achieve greater efficiency and value from health delivery systems.
