We extend the value of innovation beyond the commercialization or transfer of products that leave the laboratory.

The hospital: an epicentre of innovation

Current society is experiencing major demographic and lifestyle changes that are placing new demands on the healthcare model.

Hospitals are meeting points for patient needs, knowledge, research, innovation and experience. Therefore, they are the ideal framework for generating ideas and leading advances in the world of healthcare.

Innovation: a different and complex process

Innovation is an extremely inefficient and risky process by nature. Many ideas are studied, and few end up becoming reality. Therefore, at SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital, we work with methodologies to reduce the risks associated with innovation processes. These include Design Thinking, Business Model Innovation, Rapid Prototyping and Agile.

A broad and holistic concept of innovation

Our understanding of innovation is broad and holistic. This allows us to be more than a simple office for transfer and lets us extend the value of innovation beyond the marketing and transfer of products that emerge from the laboratory. 

SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital's innovation projects fall under one or more of these 5 areas:

  • Pharmaceutical products.
  • Materials and devices.
  • ICT and Health.
  • Organizational and care.
  • Biotechnology and molecular diagnostics.
