About Project ECHO® COE Innovation Adoption 

The Project ECHO® COE Innovation Adoption focuses on the adoption and implementation of innovation in Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) organizations. ECHO® COE Innovation Adoption aims to connect long-term care leaders together to learn new practices, support each other with technical and implementation challenges, and generate solutions and strategies to confront those challenges.   

The Centre for Aging & Brain Health Innovation (CABHI) is an accelerator focused on driving innovation in the aging and brain health sector. Established in 2015, CABHI is a unique collaboration of health care, science, industry, not-for-profit and government partners whose aim is to help improve quality of life for the world’s aging population, allowing older adults to age safely in the setting of their choice while maintaining their cognitive, emotional, and physical well-being. CABHI helps global innovators gain access to key user groups in order to test, develop, validate and accelerate their solutions in the field of aging and brain health. 

The Seniors Quality Leap Initiative (SQLI) was established by North America’s leading Long Term Care organizations in 2010, out of their collective desire to improve clinical quality and safety for seniors. Today, SQLI has grown into a strong community of practice, with 16 committed member organizations and 11 partner organizations across North America.
