About REshape and our core business
The REshape Center brings the dynamic (inter)national outside world to Radboud university medical center and makes easily accessible connections from the inside out. Core activities are exploring and investigating the potential impact of new technologies and setting up design sessions based on co-creation with healthcare professionals, patients and other stakeholders to arrive at potential innovations, from problem to opportunity. We also inspire our academic medical network by helping to set up national movements such as Dutch Hacking Health and the Health Innovation School.
By innovations we mean all innovations in patient care that cause a radical change in diagnostics, therapy or how care is provided. We are not talking about small process improvements. Also, we must be able to apply innovations in practice; we will not develop ideas and concepts that are only theoretically interesting. Our innovation process is aimed at maximizing the chances of successful improvements in patient care.
If a promising idea arises within a healthcare department or REshape that requires further development before it can be applied in practice, the iLab comes into view. Together with the initiators, the iLab specialists work on innovations on a project basis, quickly preparing them for implementation. From there, the innovations find their way into patient care both inside and outside Radboud university medical center. This allows us to apply care innovations to contribute to our mission: ‘to have a significant impact on healthcare’.
