IP Management in WA Health

Intellectual Property (IP) refers to creations of the human intellect, the rights to which are protectable by law, and that can have financial value.

IP is recognised as an intangible asset which can potentially be exploited for economic benefit. As such it aligns with the WA Health Financial Management Manual definition of an Asset as being a resource controlled by a WA health entity, from which future economic benefits are expected to flow to the health entity. Future economic benefits can be in the form of cash, cash equivalents or the potential to provide goods and services to achieve the health entities’ objectives.
