Abstract [en]

The demand for increased efficiency and patient-centered care has been influencing the

development of healthcare in Sweden, and information technology has an important role in

that process. Developing and implementing systems for public healthcare have proven to be

a great challenge. One way to address this challenge is open innovation and co-creation.

While there are a lot of studies focusing on innovation processes, there is little research

regarding how technology is presented in the results. We have studied a co-creational

workshop that focused on putting new perspectives on the use of information technology in

healthcare. The workshop resulted in eight concepts which have been analyzed in terms of

how technology is expressed. The results were categorized into implicit and explicit use of

technology and this categorization indicates that the implicit use of technology is of the

bricolage kind. By being both implicit and bricolage-like, the concepts hold qualities that

make them more likely to be integrated into existing workplaces.
