MODIS Innovation Lab - Virtual Interactive workshop (19 November 2020)

Posted 16 December 2020

Digital Health Innovation Using Wearable Technologies

To anticipate the constantly evolving field of health and health care, Modis has developed an innovation space to incubate ideas via a proof of concept into service innovations. This platform and process is named the ‘Modis Innovation Lab’ and one of the aims is to come to creative and innovative solutions to complex health care challenges. Last month, the Modis Innovation Lab organized a virtual ideation workshop on digital health innovations using wearable technologies. The scene was set by 2 inspiring keynotes (Bert Hartog, J&J - Janssen Clinical Innovation and Julie Nys, Byteflies). All warmed up for the core of the event, the participants actively contributed to one of the parallel interactive workshops. The workshops offered an opportunity for participants to contribute to real-life cases, co-developed with Byteflies, Anacura and one internal case:

  • Byteflies – How can we best shape our pilot launch towards clinical practice?
  • Anacura - What is the added value of implementing the Mental Adaptation Score (MAS) in a preventive HR policy towards chronic stress or burn-out?
  • Modis Stressmaster – How can we successfully integrate a digital coaching function in the #stressmaster study to stimulate sustainable positive lifestyle changes and reduce unnecessary stress?

The participant engagement for all three challenges was huge and facilitated interactive and lively group discussions. Visual data boards were created, and concrete outputs will help the case owners to further develop an action plan on their path to digital health innovation.
