Trends and opportunities in health care Role of citizens: Individualized healthcare From disease treatment to health promotion Diagnostics from chronic disease analysis towards health monitoring and life style change Social media, games… Independent living ”Connected health”: Towards mobile and ubiquitous health care Emergency of completely new businesses, new business models Next generation of wireless solutions in health care (wireless monitoring, future home & future hospital)
Future health technologies High potential for applications in promoting wellbeing and health
Oulu Innovation Alliance (OIA) The ultimate target of the Oulu Innovation Alliance agreement is to keep Oulu as an internationally acknowledged center for innovation an to build national and international networks of collaboration The OIA founding partners have committed 1.To focus their operations, education, research and development activities on agreed innovation areas. 2.To invest in the development of agreed infrastructures. 3.To develop and test innovation systems and processes to accelerate the development of new business The focus areas are Internet research, printed electronics & optical measurement technologies, global business & economies, environment and healthcare sectors.
Where health and technology intersect - the next opportunity Centre for Health and Technology (CHT) creates life science/ICT- driven growth opportunities by combining cutting-edge research and innovations with agile new business creation. CHT’s role is to combine the best ideas, people and resources from different fields of industries and science for co-creation of next generation health technologies, appliances and services. CHT projects are multi-disciplinary with the main focus is in technology but closely linked with application development, usability and social sciences.
Centre for Health & Technology Develops innovation processes Identifies regional innovation potential Recognizes co-operational multi-disciplinary opportunities Follows actively trends and builds strong project portfolio Ensures the communication/crosstalk between the science and industry/health care providers Facilitates dynamic development, experimenting and piloting
