inDemand model: digital solutions with higher success rate

“inDemand solves challenges identified by the customer -the Healthcare organizations-. That’s why we talk about a demand-driven model. This approach is going to increase the capacity of health entities to systematically identify and solve their needs while creating opportunities for private companies”, clarify Jorge González.  

About the added value of the co-creation process between Healthcare organizations and IT companies, González points out that “the expected result are digital solutions with higher success rate -in terms of their application in practice/market uptake- because they have been developed side by side with the client. Thanks to co-creation, developers will have an agile feedback and a better view of the needs”.
