Upskilling professionals for a more efficient Innovation Adoption in Health systems

A hands-on training programme for professionals from healthcare organizations promoting innovation to boost demand-driven, effective and sustainable adoption of innovative digital solutions.

Who is it for?

iRaise targets multidisciplinary teams of professionals involved in innovation promotion and adoption within healthcare organizations, aiming to increase their team skills and knowledge on innovating healthcare processes such as:

  • defining the unmet needs in your healthcare settings;
  • framing a potential solution, understanding the different options, the solution scope and its constraints;
  • identifying the adequate vehicle(s) to address the unmet needs;
  • presenting a viable plan to address the unmet needs, to a multidisciplinary and international audience.

Thanks to iRaise blended programme, participating teams will be able to enjoy working alongside other participants and trainers.

They will benefit from the opportunity to upgrade their learning experience through distance-learning mentoring and by joining online learning groups (as the Education Programme Kick Off, the weekly meetings with mentors, the breakfast seminars with industry and the final iRaise event). And let’s not forget the star session of this campus which consists of having iRaise trainers ‘virtually’ visiting each of the participating teams at their own facilities and working with them towards the definition of the adequate vehicle(s) to address their specific unmet needs.

Why participate?

The iRaise project is for you if you want to:

  • develop new solutions in a multidisciplinary group environment;

What is a need?

You feel a pain in your day to day work that you have identified: this is not right? And nobody is doing anything to solve it. That’s the calling. You know things could be better. If only someon… you’ve identified the pain. You know what the problem is. Only, once you look at it from different perspectives, you’ll see that the initial approach will iterate, until you finally will nail the unmet need.

How to implement change?

The theory of change will allow you identify the elements that take place when you are trying to change the way things work. You’ll meet resistance. That’s why you’ll need to prepare.

Framing and design

Our experts in design thinking and ideation will take you through the elements you are going to need to establish the new frame of the possible solutions of your unmet need.

What is a business case

You need to translate the unmet need and the solution to the numerical impact, and you will do that by elaborating a business case. And also, you’ll be introduce to mission model canvas which is going to help you organize your ideas and your project.

Identifying the barriers and enablers

You’ll be faced with barriers that will be on your way to adoption, but also enablers that will open some doors. This will be the time to introduce this in the mix.

Public procurement

Public procurement takes a special role in innovation adoption as the way the healthcare system procures is also a big buyer power to change the way things work. But we are so use to procuring with the typical tender processes. Well, that’s being contested with public procurement of innovation. We’ll tell you how that’s been done and the bet throughout the EU policy to reinforce public procurement of innovation.

Vale-based procurement case studies

You’ll be exposed to real cases of value-based procurement. In the future, some iRaise teams will be setting the example on how this is being delivered. You’ll be in the front seat of real high value impact through innovation adoption.

Identifying the right vehicle to address the unmet need

There are many vehicles you may use to arrive to your destination. The thing is, which one fits your project best? You’ll be face with that decision and iRaise will help you take it!

Social Impact Bonds

SIBs are special vehicle that relates to needs that address a special situation, a real big problem that may not have a big market to allow it to be sustainable. But the pain is still there. So this vehicle says: I’m interested in the outcome and I’m willing to fund it if this innovation adoption takes place.

Dissemination / Exploitation

Once you have your project and your vehicle to adopt innovation, you are going to have to disseminate it in different forums and formats. And also, you want to make sure your project is sustainable. An exploitation plan is going to help you achieve that.

Adoption

You are now at the end of the iRaise innovation adoption rainbow. The new phase of your journey will take you and your team to embark on new road with your brand new vehicle in place, and mission to adopt innovation.
