Vicente Traver Salcedo and Rossana Alessandrello presented iRaise as a training vehicle to promote the adoption of innovation from the demand side at the 1st CHGUV Health Innovation Day, an event organised by the General Hospital of Valencia.
What does demand-driven innovation mean?
Multidisciplinary professionals in public institutions, patients themselves, health system professionals, health providers (institutions/professionals). Starting from a home-grown perspective: an unmet need.
What does identifying and working on an unmet need imply for health professionals?
Wanting to find an innovative solution to their unmet need (which has an impact on the patient, on the professionals, on the institution and operational processes, on the sustainability of the system). And to debate, work, discuss, clarify, describe, refine the unmet need, its impact at different levels, validated from a multidisciplinary perspective of several necessary profiles, plural, equal, with different perspectives, skills, sensitivities and professional profiles, able to align around a common objective 🎯.
How is this done?
Team. The first photo in this post illustrates Vicente and Rossana in a group photo. The organisers and speakers with whom they entered into a conversation 🗨️💬 from their dual leadership roles with which they represent the direction of this educational programme for the #upskilling and #reskilling of a multidisciplinary team. Shared leadership, collaboration, co-creation of complex projects based on the need, will and professionalism of professionals involved in the cooperative transformation of our greatest challenges in health.
How to start?
The first step, as illustrated by Vicente in the second photo. Identifying the need, which I know from my day-to-day healthcare activity. Collaborating with colleagues in my institution who are also involved in the process.
iRaise offers its own methodology to strengthen teams around what it means to align 5-7 multidisciplinary professionals around a common shared challenge. Working collaboratively, iterating for about 99 days to finally choose the most appropriate 🚂 vehicle for the adoption of an innovative solution that does not exist today.
Vehicles that incentivise the creation of new markets that provide innovative responses to the needs of our health and social systems. Public procurement of innovation is one of them.
Rossana Alessandrello is a reference for value-based public procurement. In the third photo she explains how, despite the existence of the PPI, we are still far from the desired objectives:
- Less than 25% of R&D grants end up in commercialisation.
- More than half of the PPIs fail to achieve their objectives.
- Room for improvement in the adoption of IPCs.
