Successful health innovation requires more than the creation of a new treatment, service, or technology. It also involves gaining an understanding of the needs of the intended recipients or users of the innovation and the environment in which the innovation is going to be introduced. Innovating with the intended users or recipi- ents of new health products is crucial for maximizing the chances of adoption and uptake of new ideas and technologies. Such co-production requires careful planning and facilitation to ensure productive partnerships and involvement of all parties affected by the health innovation. This chapter contains key ideas to help research- ers co-produce health innovations with intended recipients or users of new products or services: • Prerequisites for co-production. • Determining appropriate user-centered methods. • Collecting and analyzing the data. • Integrating results into design.
