Working together with

Our research process

We conducted an intensive research study with a variety of experts and patients about the lack of continuity of care in Colombia. 

In order to identify the critical challenges to continuity of care in Colombia, we conducted an intensive research study. 

We interviewed with diverse groups throughout the healthcare ecosystem including Government officials, Public Payer, Healthcare Experts, Healthcare Providers, Patient Associations, Patients, and Innovation experts.

We have also synthesized desk research including existing studies, Current statistics for each country, Global studies on healthtech, and Innovation network for each country.

Colombia's innovation challenges

We've identified three key challenges specific to the Colombian healthcare system. 

Every country in Latin America faces a  unique set of problems. Therefore, we have taken the 8 opportunity areas and combined them in a way that is tailored them each country, resulting in three specific challenges. These are the starting point for the open innovation challenge.
