Digital Health Innovation

- A Masterclass for Industry Managers


Stay competitive

Understand the changing landscape of digital healthcare, find new business opportunities and learn tools for more valuable and robust innovations.

New digital products and solutions are at the center of an emerging transformation of healthcare. Companies entering and competing in this environment need to understand this changing landscape.

Changes redefine the opportunities and the context for innovations and the way innovations must be developed to become competitive. From this masterclass participants obtain a deeper and more actionable understanding of key changes in the landscape. With help from university and industry experts they learn and practice crucial tools to make their innovations more competitive. 

Course Content

The teaching format is highly interactive, combining lectures, workshops, group work, cases as well as participants’ own experiences. Content is organised into five central topics:

What are the drivers currently changing the landscape and what are the implications for innovations in healthcare of the large-scale platform technologies?
How do large health platforms shape the innovation landscape?
Bringing the voice of the customer (VoC) to products, services and platforms.
The Living Lab as a driver for innovation.
Challenges in commercialising healthcare innovations.

"With the amount of data being available for integration I consider the healthcare area a driver for innovation. I hope that the healthcare industry will catch up on the possibilities that these technological breakthroughs offer by providing solutions, inventions, devices, processes etc. for the sake of better treatments and health." Søren Brunak, Professor, Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Protein Research
