HEALTHCARE IDEAS WORTH UP TO $50,000, SAYS PREMIER

PRIZES OF $1,000 TO BE AWARDED TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS

Thirders who work in healthcare could soon win a $1,000 prize for submitting their ideas about how to improve healthcare.


Premier Tim Houston last week announced a new contest asking for healthcare workers to submit their “commonsense ideas” that could result in better healthcare for Nova Scotians. Healthcare workers have until November 22 to enter the contest.


"We have no shortage of talented people who work across the spectrum of healthcare in our province, providing care to Nova Scotians every day," said Premier Tim Houston. "They live and breathe the system daily, and many of them have great ideas that can improve healthcare for patients and for their colleagues. We want to hear those solutions and put them into action." According to the premier’s news release, ideas should be simple and easy to implement with little to no funding. Eligible submissions will be entered into a random draw for up to 50 prizes of $1,000.

The release says that from all the eligible submissions received, 20 ideas will be shortlisted by a review panel, and Nova Scotians can vote for their top 10. Those top 10 ideas will be considered priorities, and the government will work with health-system partners to implement them, where feasible. More details about public voting will be announced after the best ideas are shortlisted, the province says.
