Discussion topics

Everybody agrees that we need to incorporate minor stakeholders’ drive and innovative capacity into efforts to develop eHealth. This applies to both entrepreneurial companies and healthcare staff alike. Still, the reality is that obstacles to innovation continue to frustrate attempts to integrate innovative eHealth ideas with existing systems.

In truth, minor stakeholders who want to help revolutionise Swedish healthcare face many major obstacles: connection fees, certification costs and authorisation services as well as hierarchies, traditions and deep-seated norms. The current system was designed to suit large groups and organisations, but if Sweden is to achieve its vision to become the world leader in eHealth by 2025, local stakeholders will need to think outside the box and throw open their doors to encourage widespread participation. That being the case, how do we move on from today’s giant, isolated entities and instead begin to think in terms of networks, ecosystems and frenemies? Should we create a fast lane to help entrepreneurs avoid getting bogged down by overly-complicated systems and expenses? Do we need a “free zone” for progress-oriented healthcare staff that lets them focus 110 % on developing patient-focused care through eHealth?
David meets Goliath, innovation meets established practice – how do we overcome the obstacles to innovation?
