Syfte och mål
Organizational and professional practice in the networked society raises the question of how open innovation could become an explicit strategy for hospitals, rather than a reaction to external pressures. The opportunity lies in how communicative practices enable open innovation in healthcare and then how to design and manage these practices. We argue that a not so common, but indeed sensitive to commons approach is needed developing solutions requires collaboration (http://goo.gl/VsR9yd).
