Workshop – a handbook for successful implementation
The potential of technical interventions for healthcare and wellbeing, such as games for health, is promising. However, the successful implantation of these technical interventions is difficult. The implementation of a good idea from scratch is a long process with ups and down. Literature provides various theories and models for the implementation of these interventions by the most important stakeholders. However, these theories and models are not very pragmatic. Therefore, within Vitaal Twente (www.vitaaltwente.nl), a regional partnership in the eastern part of the Netherlands, a digital handbook for successful implementation is developed in co-creation with clinical, technical and scientific partners. This handbook contains various chapter focusing on important steps during the implementation of technical intervention for healthcare and wellbeing. During the workshop, these chapters will be presented and discussed with the participants. One of the first chapters focus on aligning the technology used and clinical aim and another chapter focusses on the proper evaluation of the technical intervention. The aim of this handbook is to help clinical, technical and scientific partner with the implantation of technical intervention for healthcare and wellbeing. Working together on successful implantation.
