i&R to evaluate innovation management strategies

In many health processes, related with the assistance in hospitals or with the delivery of services to patients, there is a wide space for improvement. The combination of technology and design with healthcare knowledge will allow better and more cost effective services, and it’s an open door to continuous innovation.
