Comparative Report Care about IT

The HealthTech ecosystem scan plays a crucial role in the establishment of the Care about IT CoVE; as such, the regional analysis of the participating countries has been carried out and the comparison has been made.

This comparison allows to further assess the strengths and weaknesses of each regional ecosystem, the best practices and skills required have been summarised as a practical means to ensure that appropriate project objectives can be tailored based on the results in relation to HealthTech.

Aim of the scan is to gather extensive knowledge with regard to regional/national IT and healthcare ecosystems (in the participating partner countries), to delve deeper into the existing labour markets concerning healthcare and IT innovation, and to identify the current needs of various types of stakeholders (educational institutions, IT companies and healthcare institutions). By gaining insight into the needs of these ecosystems, these two ecosystems can be integrated into a cross-over HealthTech ecosystem. By executing this scan of the ecosystems, we are able to identify and pursue the points on which we can deliver additional value, inspire and learn from each other's best practices and identify opportunities for collaboration and improvement.

The ecosystem analysis was carried out in two steps: first, a regional analysis was carried out for the specific regions of Piedmont in northern Italy, the Tallinn region of Estonia, southwest region of Finland, and the northern Netherlands. The regional reports can be found in the attachments. The goal of these regional reports was to analyse the current healthcare technology ecosystems in depth, and to identify points of improvement. The input for the report was collected via interviews and a survey amongst stakeholders in education institutions, healthcare organisations and IT companies (see figure 1).

As for the second step, all regional reports were summarised and compared, which was possible due to the similar methodologies. The results of this can be found in this report. By conducting the regional reports and following up with this comparative report, the strengths and weaknesses of each regional ecosystem can be assessed, and appropriate project goals can be tailored based on the results.
