eCMC Seminars: #2: Social value of healthcare innovations

How do we measure the social impact of healthcare innovations?

In this 90-minute seminar, Stephanie Jansen-Kosterink from Roessingh Research and Development will guide you through this theme based on the SROI methodology, which stands for Social Return On Investment. Due to limited resources and capacity in healthcare, measuring impact becomes crucial. The SROI method is ideal for the sustainable implementation of healthcare innovations.

The evidence-based SROI methodology demonstrates the social impact of healthcare innovation by understanding, steering, and communicating it in economic and social terms. This is done through an impact map, developed in collaboration with stakeholders, followed by five further steps to calculate the SROI ratio. This introduction is suitable for anyone working on innovation in healthcare, both on the technological development and implementation in practice. In addition to familiarizing yourself with the SROI method, this seminar also offers a great opportunity to connect with other parties interested in this topic.

eCMC Seminars

This seminar marks the second session of a series of activities organized by the eCMC, in which joint sessions are held with partners involved in remote patient monitoring & eHealth. These sessions are designed to provide a platform where experts from various sectors can come together, share knowledge, and exchange innovative ideas about the use of technologies in healthcare. Our aim is to develop a deep understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the field of remote patient monitoring and eHealth, and to collectively explore solutions that can lead to improved patient care and health outcomes. We look forward to collaborating with all of you and making a positive impact on the future of healthcare.



Care must be delivered in the right place, at the right time, and supported by technology whenever possible and necessary. In this, eHealth and Remote Patient Management (RPM) is a key enabling technology. The eCMC connects science, healthcare and industry to strengthen and accelerate eHealth/Remote Patient Management innovation. The eCMC is starting in the Twente/Salland region, but has clear national and European ambitions.

 Fast Forward Innovation for RPM

The eCMC (expertiseCenter for Remote Monitoring & Coaching) is a one-stop system: one place with an extensive and active network providing supporting services for design, development, and implementation of a product, research, and training. The eCMC is an initiative of the University of Twente - TechMed Centre and TNO, cofounded by NeLL and supported by NovelT.
