Reviews

“Many of today’s healthcare innovations come with a heavy price tag —waste, inequity and threats to the future of the planet. Innovation must —urgently— become more relevant, more equitable, more responsive, more ecologically and socially responsible, more frugal and more sustainable. But how to achieve this, given the many misalignments and perverse incentives in the current system? These distinguished authors make a powerful case for change and offer validated tools and techniques for supporting it.”

—Trisha Greenhalgh, MD, Professor of primary care health sciences, Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, Oxford University, England

“This book provides a valuable reading, especially for entrepreneurs and innovators, as well as for intermediary platforms such as incubators, accelerators, and cluster hubs, in the healthcare sector. Innovating in health implies a bigger responsibility, and this book provides a clear and easy-to-follow roadmap, a responsible innovation compass, on how to build innovations in this sector in a responsible way.”

—Tatiana Iakovleva, PhD., Professor of entrepreneurship, Business School, Department of Innovation, Management and Marketing, University of Stavanger, Norway

“will stress the urgency of tackling the environmental impacts of health care products and services”

—Fiona A. Miller, PhD., Professor of Health Policy, Chair in Health Management Strategies, and Director of the Centre for Sustainable Health Systems at the Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

“Dr. Lehoux’s unique background in industrial design and public health shines through every page. It is exciting to read such a carefully crafted book by early leaders in Responsible Innovation in Health.”

—Logan D. A. Williams, PhD., Author of Eradicating blindness: Global health innovation from South Asia (Palgrave, 2019), Washington D.C., United States
