This presentation will focus on the story of a UK SME, Rescon Technologies, that started with an idea to harness history at source in 2011. This involved developing a tool to allow patients to capture their own medical history in real-time, in an accessible easy to use format. It will cover the journey from idea generation to co-development pilots through to going to market in the UK. This will include examples of how opportunities need to be embraced to allow obstacles to be overcome in getting a product to market in a fragmented health and social care ecosystem.
Specific topics that will be addressed are:
1. The issues around contemporary history taking;
2. The rise of patient reported outcome measures;
3. History as a diagnostic and prognostic tool;
4. How history relates to new outcome commissioning models;
6. User interfaces and user experience;
7. Segmentation, quantification and digitisation;
9. System and workflow integration;
10. Competition, interoperability, and collaboration;
11. Health economics;
12. Advantages of an integrated information technology approach.
The presentation will conclude with recommended considerations before embarking on the journey of turning an idea or aspiration into a sustainable product that will improve health or social care.
