The Better Care Victoria Innovation Fund has supported sector-led innovation and improvement projects. The mission of the Innovation Fund is to scale and embed selected innovative practices across the Victorian health sector. Scaling up is defined as "deliberate efforts to increase the impact of successfully tested health interventions to benefit more people and foster policy and program development on a lasting basis" (WHO, 2007).
Projects selected for scaling are assessed against specific criteria and initiatives are supported by a centralised resource team to facilitate shared learnings across the system. In 2017, two initiatives were funded, Choosing Wisely Scaling Collaboration and Think sepsis. Act fast Scaling Collaboration. Further scaling projects are planned for 2019-2020.
