Accelerating Innovation: The Power of the Crowd

From the Healthcare & Life Sciences Institute

Accelerating Innovation - The Power of the Crowd is an essential read for healthcare leaders in pursuit of the transformational benefits of implementing sustainable eHealth programs.

This report highlights our global expertise as well as the challenges and successes reported by 39 top executives from 15 countries in Europe, ASPAC and the Americas. It is our observation that a successful and efficient eHealth system will be facilitated around three concepts:

  • For eHealth programs to become sustainable, they must reach critical mass - "crowd accelerated innovation"
  • Sustaining the eHealth transformation requires everyone in the health system to work together to achieve results - "collaborative alignment"
  • Due to eHealth’s transformative nature, "creative dislocation" is essential. Stakeholders must be prepared for new methods that will make many legacy processes and approaches redundant

The report adds to the global dialogue and offers quick insight into common bottlenecks, a self diagnostic test and a sustainability barometer.
