This project focuses on health-care innovation and empirically investigates the role of patients of chronic diseases in the development of TT&MD. We define “patient innovators” as individuals who have developed a new TT&MD with the objective of using it to improve or cope with their health-condition. We build our study upon previous research that found that patients and family members display innovative capabilities and have developed a significant number of TT&MD for themselves. More specifically, we propose to understand the behaviour of patients interacting with web 2.0 platforms where patients can post, share and comment their solutions with the rest of the community.
The fellowship will be awarded for an initial period of 3 months, starting in July 2014, and can be renewed conditionally based on the performance of the individual. The position will be governed by the rules of both FCT and Católica-Lisbon. During this period the BI fellow is expected to work full time on this project.
