Assesspatients were selected to participate in the ECHA Health & Wellness Innovation showcase at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona with twenty three other European ehealth start-ups. This short blog post is about the key lessons we learned from participating in the showcase and the wider Mobile Congress.
The Future of Wearables
Patrice then made another key point in relation to the adoption of wearables which is also applicable to any ehealth innovation if the wearable or innovation cause sustained behaviour change with the user then that is 'killer app' (i.e. provides the motivation for continued use).
For ehealth startups, what is the motivation for sustained behaviour change that they enable for their user community?
Collaboration and Person Centered Care
As with Assesspatients, other companies such as Lovexair, Acvfit and Hygea were demonstrating the benefits of engaging with the person and clinician in their design and development work. A key principle of lean startup – validate your work with representatives of your customer segments. Thus enable a business model that has a greater probability of success.
