Business Modeling and Value Network Design Case Study for a Tele-Rehabilitation Service

Bart Nieuwenhuis

Abstract

During the last decade, many useful telemedicine pilots have been conducted, however, only a few telemedicine services did actually reach the market and were successfully being deployed. One of the reasons is that costs and benefits are not equally distributed across the organizations of a value network. Value network analysis combined with business modeling right from the beginning of a project may improve the success rate of telemedicine services development and deployment. This paper presents results of this approach used in a case study for Myotel, a wireless rehabilitation service for treatment of chronic work related neck shoulder problems.
