Digital Health solutions with higher chance of success proposed and developed side by side with healthcare organisations
inDemand is a new model where Healthcare organizations and companies co-create Digital Health solutions, with the economic support of public regional funds.
Why is this model innovative?
inDemand applies at the same time demand-driven and co-creation approaches. It is implemented in 3 pilot regions: Murcia Region (Spain), Paris Region (France) and Oulu Region (Finland).
A new co-creation model for Digital Health
inDemand solves challenges identified by the customer -the Healthcare organizations-. That’s why we talk about a demand driven model.
This approach is going to increase the capacity of health entities to systematically identify and solve their needs while creating opportunities for private companies.
Co-creation process added value
The expected results are digital solutions with higher success rate in terms of their application in practice/market uptake because they have been developed side by side with the client.
Process of work
Twenty four companies will co-develop their solutions with health care professionals and validate them into their own health care organisation.
The project is composed by 2 iterations with companies in a period of 3 years.
The inDemand Model
Using the inDemand model as a framework, each of the 3 pilot regions will follow the same process and similar schedule: i) need identification, ii) call for companies, and iii) solution development.
Health ClusterNet is invited to be on the Advisory Board of the project.
