SMB-meeting; Patient-driven innovation
Healthcare is a peoples business. Keeping the patient not just in the center of the attention of innovation but also as a co-driver in your development process of is of paramount importance. But still, all too often businesses forget to involve patients in the core of their innovations and pay for this mistake in the end.
Our SMB meeting of May 19 focuses on some best practices on how to involve patients.
First speaker is Erik Verkaar from Zorgbelang, an organisation helping others to involve patients in their processes. Not just how to deal with empowered patients but also patients with low health and literacy capabilities. Our second speaker, Chris van den Brink, is patient ambassador for Enzyre. Enzyre develops near patient diagnostics for blood coagulation. Chris will talk about the importance of developing from the perspective of how the patient will use the technology in real live. And last but not least, Concha van Rijssel will talk about how Radboudumc Innovation Labs has created an innovation process really incorporating the involvement of the patient view.
For those interested, we will conclude the event with networking, drinks & bites.
This event will be organized in a live setting at Novio Tech Campus in Nijmegen (building M, Mee&Greet area). A few days before the event we will send an email with practical information on directions/parking (sender = firstname.lastname@example.org). You might have to check your spam box.
