The paper explores the application of responsible innovation (RI) principles in the design and implementation of innovation in the context of digitally-enabled healthcare. In particular, we are interested in the scope for bringing in RI considerations at various stages in the innovation process and in the relevant tools and frameworks which might facilitate this. Using the particular example of a detailed longitudinal case of the development and diffusion (with subsequent modification and “re-innovation”) of a digital health information platform, we identify a number of key points at which the innovation concept “pivoted” to reflect new information, some of which resulted from a wider level of inclusion (one of the core RI principles). The paper explores the role played by structured frameworks (such as the “Business Model Canvas”) in the development of other digital healthcare innovations at an early stage.
