The challenge of value-creation in complex health and care ecosystems

The need to advance value in health and care presents numerous challenges for companies, providers, payers and policymakers.

Now more than ever, complex, fast-evolving markets and systems demand advanced capabilities for sensing value-based innovation, growth and transformation opportunities, for designing adaptive organisations, strategy and value propositions, and for sustaining value-creation through continuous learning and renewal.

To realise higher value, companies and organisations can no longer rely on limited disease-based reductionist thinking, on narrow outcome-over-cost measures of value, on technology-driven innovation, on piecemeal ideas-first methods or on serendipitous, safe-to-fail experimentation. 

In short, a new, more expansive ecosystem perspective of value is needed – one that achieves higher forms of value on a more sustained, viable and adaptive basis.  

Umio brings a universal systemic design framework and approach for co-creating advanced forms of value in health and care ecosystems.

Our framework, Health Value Design®, will address your value-based growth, innovation and transformation challenges.

It will help you think and see more systemically, understand health problems more deeply, reveal new opportunities with more clarity, and inform your value-based research, strategy and programmes with greater foresight, evidence and confidence.  

Over the past 10 years, we have identified and evidenced hundreds of opportunities, framed value, innovation and growth strategy, designed multiple value propositions, and co-created solutions of all kinds in numerous complex health and care ecosystems (see our example projects).

With our unique blend of systemic and strategic health value perspectives, capabilities and services, we can help you overcome your complex growth, innovation and transformation challenges with renewed purpose and confidence.
