Six keys to successful health innovation
New technologies and applications offer a wealth of opportunity to improve and reorganise healthcare. This is not necessarily about introducing the technology as such, but rather about the way in which the technology actually adds value for users: patients and healthcare professionals. How do we ensure that technology makes the best possible contribution to healthcare innovation? Or better still: how can technology contribute to the necessary healthcare transformation?
Although technological applications are finding their way into healthcare more and more and are becoming an inherent part of the healthcare process, their deployment and use is not always self-evident. In the past five years, Health Enablers took a deep dive into over 500 innovative examples and performed an extensive case study with over 50 innovations to unravel the keys to successful implementation. Based on the lessons learned, we list six keys to successful healthcare innovation, to strengthen the innovative capability of healthcare organisations. Not with the intention to be non-exhaustive, but to open the door for a collaborative way forward. The keys are explained in more depth in the publication of Healthcare Enablers.
