InnovatioCuris foundation of healthcare & excellence (ICFHE) is proud to announce the second of a knowledge series of webinars with ScanBalt and Tartu Biotechnology Park.

In Healthcare an innovation, at the end, should somehow impact the caring relation and/or total cost. It should improve caregivers’ capabilities (can do), precision of diagnosis and therapy (know what do do), and/or motivation (want to do). Innovations can be disruptive to anybody, including the innovator. The system effects of potential innovations can be approached using the Business Model Canvas.  Innovations need to fit its environment. Contexts can be analyzed using the Demand-supply -based Operating Logic (DSO) model.

So, with this webinar we will understand that, can the potential mechanisms by which an innovation brings value be identified in advance?
