The Hospital Clínic (HC) of Barcelona is a public leading innovative healthcare organization that is recognized for the high quality of the tertiary care provided as a reference center for one third of the population of Catalonia (> 2.000.000 inhabitants) and, in some specialties, for some regions of Spain. Moreover, HC is a general hospital for more than 540.000 citizens of Barcelona.
The Patient Experience Forum of the Hospital Clínic is a Living lab structure integrated in a clinical setting and dedicated to developing and testing innovative solutions for the improvement of healthcare services and processes from the patient’s perspective.
To professionals willing to develop and test their services or products by integrating end-users perspectives in the creation and validation processes, it gives access to a variety of profiles that would bring high-value contributions as beneficiaries of the final product/service: hospital and primary care patients, their caregivers, and other citizens interested in taking part in these activities. We also offer support to professionals in various areas such as: the identification of unmet needs, the design and implementation of co-creation and validation activities, and logistic support in the development of these.
We are interested in participating in a project of technology transfer and open innovation initiatives in the health sector and to provide our experience in terms of product and services testing and validation, and of identification of unmet needs among users.
