Abstract in Undetermined

The medical technology (medtech) industry in Sweden is situated within

a complex innovation ecosystem, in which various stakeholders from the public,

private and academic sectors need to collaborate to meet demands on effective and

effi cient healthcare. Demographics are changing and those in need of healthcare are

not only larger in numbers than ever but they are also more knowledgeable and

demanding. Increasing innovative performance is crucial in both the private and

The medical technology (medtech) industry in Sweden is situated within

a complex innovation ecosystem, in which various stakeholders from the public,

private and academic sectors need to collaborate to meet demands on effective and

effi cient healthcare. Demographics are changing and those in need of healthcare are

not only larger in numbers than ever but they are also more knowledgeable and

demanding. Increasing innovative performance is crucial in both the private and

public healthcare sectors, but bold steps forward need to be taken in light of stricter

rules and regulations for how healthcare stakeholders should manage both their

internal processes and the ways in which they interact with other stakeholders in the

larger innovation system. The traditional way in which medtech companies gain

access to user needs, primarily working through a sales–purchasing relationship

with the public healthcare sector, is outdated and needs to be replaced with an

increasingly collaborative and cocreative model of healthcare innovation.

This chapter describes experiences and lessons learned from InnoPlant, a 3-year

(2008–2011) action learning project involving three companies from the Swedish

medtech industry, two county/regional councils responsible for public healthcare,

and four academic institutions—carried out within the framework of the Swedish

Product Innovation Engineering program (PIEp). The purpose of the project was to

advance the capability of stakeholders from the public, private, and academic sectors

to collaborate in the cocreation of healthcare innovations. (Less)
