University of Twente | TechMed Centre > Stimulate Health Technology implementation 

At the UT, we do excellent research on health tech innovation. Still, it remains difficult to bring those innovations to society and the healthcare market and create the impact we want to achieve: improving healthcare. To enlarge the impact of health technology on society, an integral approach is needed to take into account more than solely a mere technical focus on the creation of (smart) products and services. For instance, a social-economic, ethical, governance, behavioral and cultural perspective that influence adoption and acceptance of novel technologies. Early involvement of stakeholders and end-users prevent ‘mismatches’ in research, ensure commitment and understanding, but also attract fertile investors.
