Health care is undergoing significant changes in how value is being created and captured (Porter 2010; Porter and Olmsberg Teisberg 2006). At the core of this development lie various digital innovations as they occasion shifts in how the health care sector has been traditionally organized. From genomics over medical imagery to wearable devices – more and more data is available to feed innovation in health care services (Jarvenpaa and Markus 2018; Rothe et al. 2019; Vassilakopoulou et al. 2018). Greater processing power and new algorithms drive novel diagnostics, more precise therapeutics and they also enable patients and consumers to track and maintain their own wellbeing. This challenges existing practices, sinters boundaries between roles, and even relocates work from inside traditional healthcare providers into the private lives of patients and their relatives (Barrett et al. 2012, 2016; Dadgar and Joshi 2018; Wessel et al. 2019). A central theme that cuts across these developments is that the interest of policy makers and researchers increasingly turns to questions of value; that is how digital innovation changes how value is being created, maintained, or even destroyed in the abovementioned areas. This implies a wealth of new questions for IS research that is turning to these novel developments only recently.
This track is broadly framed around the idea of generating value from digital innovation in the context of health. This broadness implies that we welcome all submissions with the potential to contribute to our understanding of the relationship between digital innovation and value creation in health care. We welcome design-oriented work, theory-oriented research, and conceptual papers. We are agnostic in terms of methodologies applied. Submissions may explore these topics but we are by no means limited to them:
  • The role and management of biodata for digital innovation in health
  • The role of traditional professionals roles, identities, and institutions for value creation in health
  • Design of digital innovations for improving patients’ self-management of chronic conditions
  • The role of data for promoting prevention that challenges a disease-based health care system
  • Explorations of novel revenue models, operational models, and business models in the context of digital innovation in health care
  • New reimbursement models based on data
  • Comparisons between outcomes of data-driven strategies to improve health care delivery
  • Design and evaluations of various AI-technologies for creating value
