Succesful Entrepreneurship in eHealth (SEE)
• Two-year research project with 28 participants in The Netherlands
• 15 eHealth SME’s
• innovation specialists, research institutes
• health care providers, patient organisations
• health insurance companies, national health care organizations
• Aim: to establish guidelines for successful eHealth innovation
• innovation routes in the health care system
• stakeholders and their interests in eHealth innovations
• feasible and convincing evidence for eHealth innovations
The project’s approach
• Phase 1: inventory
• creating an overview of the Dutch health care system
• stakeholders, their interests, and the kinds of evidence they require
• Phase 2: case studies
• descriptions of paths followed by SME’s and lessons learned
• Phase 3: guidelines and best practices
• synthesis of lessons learned into a systematic approach
• validation of the approach in a second set of case studies
• Phase 4: consolidation and tool development
• development of a workshop format, web tool, and handbook

An international map?
• What does the health care system look like in your country?
• how comparable are health care systems in, e.g., Western Europe?
• could the approach be applicable to your country?
• Would you like to cooperate with us to create an international
version of the eHealth innovation map?
• incorporate country-specific legislation and best practices
• extend and validate the approach in your own country
• start a cooperation (or perhaps a European project)?
Note: eHealth SME’s often need to act on an international scale…
Thank you for your attention
