The best practice for Health Care organisations to manage innovations

Health care in the Baltic Sea Region is split into several sectors which function separately: health care providers, enterprises of different sizes, research, and regulatory and financing institutions. The public expenditure on healthcare will potentially jump from the present 8-12% of GDP to >14% in 2030 and continue to grow beyond that date.

If nothing is done, the overriding concern is to find ways to balance budgets, restrain excessive spending and meet the growing demands by the patients and employees.

Unless this is not done, the funds to pay for healthcare will soon fall short of demand. Therefore governments and politicians have to find new innovative ways for health care organisations, including organizational renewal, ways of managing healthcare, measuring outcome and utilize their own innovative capability to improve the care by new methods and products.
