Innovation Forum 2014.01.22  Roy NybergTopic:“From a Lean to a Rich View of Innovation: Case Evidence fromthe Emergence of Mobile Health”'The concept of innovation tends to be used to describe advances intechnology and service concepts. For example, Christensen (1997) hasmade an argument of ‘disruptive innovation’, in which he has claimedthat the primary factor to explain change from existing technicalarrangements to new solutions is in product features. I argue that thisis a lean view of innovation, and I make a case for a richer view, whichI draw from my research on the emergence of mobile health. The last fewyears have seen increasing public talk of mobile technology use inhealth care in many Western countries. A closer look reveals that therehave been efforts to improve cost and health outcome efficiencies by useof mobile devices for about two decades. I discuss the organisationalefforts and challenges in the emergence of mobile health, in England andFinland, and use this evidence to make an argument about a
