[B] Social physics: How good ideas spread-the lessons from a new science
Pentland, A. (2014). Penguin.
Social physics deals with the flow of ideas and the way human social networks disseminate ideas and transform them into behaviors. Humans leave a digital trace of such magnitude, that the amount of new information we have about human activity is a bast field of research. +

[p] The knowledge-creating theory revisited: knowledge creation as a synthesizing process
Nonaka, I., & Toyama, R. (2003).  Knowledge management research & practice 1(1)
Knowledge creation can be conceptualized as a dialectical process, in which various contradictions are synthesized through dynamic interactions among individuals, the organization, and the environment. +

[n] Truth, damn truth & open data.
Huntingmammoths (2015)
Anyone can download a spreadsheet with the nearly 40.000 violations of hygiene listed throughout all NY restaurants inspected by the New York City Department of Health & Mental Hygiene. Such data will describe how schools or hospitals perform, how restaurants or any other public service accomplish their duties or how mayor candidates spend their campaign budget. +

[n] Design Research: driver for innovation.
Huntingmammoths (2013)
Design may be an excellent link to connect knowledge production and companies. Difficulties to approach technological research with market are well known and are more significant when the size of the company is not large.  +

Co-learning through consensus

co-learning organizationA learning organization is innovative by definition

Learning at individual level has become an available commodity, easier to manage than ever before. Nevertheless the current challenge is learning together. co-learning. The major part of what is made: products, services or tasks, is made collectively. Our environment and values are built collectively as well as workplaces and working rules. Moreover innovation at organizational level is not possible if a kind of co-learning is not happening.

i&R devoted to co-creation and collaborative innovation strategies

The collective dimension plays a major role in innovation so understanding collaborative processes is essential. Involvement of users, providers and any kind of stakeholders related with the project must be considered and managed.

Former research

The years shared with Dra. Bascuñana, and her Sant Pau Hospital’s team, was a great experience. Living the inside part of the hospital gives a perspective of the job that healthcare professionals do, their accountability and knowledge, but mostly their desire and capacity to learn.

[wp] TRHLAB Modelo de Innovación 
Josep Mª Monguet.  Bascuñana, H, Monguet, JMª, Trejo, A, (2012)
TRHLAB is a telemedicine tool to assess and follow patients therapy in rehabilitation. The model is based in recording and sending videos to the therapists for assessment and control. The patient has access to videos that show how to perform the therapies that have been proven beneficial. 2014 Award  +

A system for the innovation in blood transfusion process in hospitals, that allows the comparison between the classical transfusion process and a new process based on RFID. The system allowed the participation of experts to consensus the costs and the levels of errors in the different steps of the process. The project was developed with doctors from Sant Pau and Clinic Hospitals of Barcelona thanks to a grant from the Catalan Health Department. + +p

[cp] The costs of non-training in chronic wounds: estimates through practice simulation 
Gaspar, P., Monguet, JMª, Ojeda, J., Costa, J., & Costa, R. (2009). In Electronic Healthcare. Istanbul: Springer.
Einstein said “if you think education is expensive try ignorance”. To support this simple sentence, the research proposes a model to estimate the costs of “no-learning”, that has been applied to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic wounds. + +p

Monguet, JMª, Costa, J., Gaspar, P., & Costa, R. (2010). In Handbook of Research on Developments in E-Health and Telemedicine. IGI Global.
The platform e-fer stores a vast number of virtual cases of chronic wounds. Each case represents a thorough description of professional experiences, lived in a real context.  The trainee try to solve the cases by choosing the best diagnosis and treatment, and then the system calculates the economical cost of the errors of the student. +
