- 560 Downloads
Chapter 3 represents the first empirical study. This study recognizes that a multitude of online health platforms is available and derives the need to identify those platforms that may serve as OII platforms. After deriving dimensions for typology of health 2.0 platforms, a large scale case‐study‐based approach is chosen. Through desk review, a sample of online health platforms is created from which health 2.0 platforms are filtered. For each of the latter case vignettes are developed. The study provides classification of health 2.0 platforms from an innovation perspective and identifies a set of OII platforms for which further descriptive attributes are found.
