Do You Have an Innovative Idea?

Health care workforce needs are critical in New Hampshire and require new and innovative thinking to address recruitment, retention, and sustainability. The primary goal of the Innovation Challenge is to promote and support innovative ventures in the health care workforce space in New Hampshire.

New Hampshire partners have mobilized to launch bold, innovative projects to address the state’s need for a dedicated, robust healthcare workforce.

Dedicated advocates have launched over 50 initiatives to address the pressing healthcare workforce needs in their communities and throughout New Hampshire.

HealthForce NH works to raise awareness and create connections across these initiatives.

Below we highlight some exciting projects underway to grow, retain, and sustain a robust and diverse healthcare workforce.
