Moving tele-monitoring and tele-treatment from promise to practice : a business model approach for a chronic lower back pain application
Huis in ‘t Veld, Rianne, Fielt, Erwin, & Vollenbroek-Hutten, Miriam (2011) Moving tele-monitoring and tele-treatment from promise to practice : a business model approach for a chronic lower back pain application. International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management, 12(3/4), pp. 333-349.
The availability of new information and communication technologies creates opportunities for new, mobile tele-health services. While many promising tele-health projects deliver working R&D prototypes, they often do not result in actual deployment. We aim to identify critical issues than can increase our understanding and enhance the viability of the mobile tele-health services beyond the R&D phase by developing a business model. The present study describes the systematic development and evaluation of a service-oriented business model for tele-monitoring and -treatment of chronic lower back pain patients based on a mobile technology prototype. We address challenges of multi-sector collaboration and disruptive innovation.
