Co-authoring new book about open innovation

In collaboration with Philips Design (Director of Global Trends Claudia Lieshout and Director of People Research Dr. Mili Docampo Rama) The Health Innovation Centre of Southern Denmark represented by my colleague Senior Consultant Dorte Dalkjær and I are writing a book about open innovation within healthcare.

There´s nothing new about the term Open Innovation as it was coined over 10 years ago. The new thing is, that it´s about changing the mindset of the big companies and organisations before it really can happen, and that´s a super complex situation. Not the least when it comes to the public sector, the healthcare sector and the collaboration between public and private parties.

More information will following during 2014 as the work of the book progress.


Research and innovation project at the dialyses ward

The Dialysis Ward of Fredericia Hospital has a long and proud history, as well as a stated objective to be the worlds best dialysis ward. The ward is now to be relocated in a brand new building at another hospital – Kolding Hospital. But how do you take an organisation, change it to the better and at the same time enable its stated objective through a new physical design and architecture?

Well, through ethnographic research and a service design optics Nikolaj Bebe and the rest of the SDSI team found out, that a normal dialysis treatment in time corresponds to the time going from Copenhagen, Denmark to Malaga, Spain by plain, except for that a dialyses treatment at the ward doesn’t have the same time economy that, on the other hand, is a perfectly deliberate and intended strategy in the airport industry.
