PRESENTATION OF THE ASSESSMENT TOOL

DEFINITION OF RESPONSIBLE INNOVATION IN HEALTH (RIH)

RIH consists in a collaborative endeavour wherein stakeholders are committed to clarify and meet a set of ethical, economic, social and environmental principles, values and requirements when they design, finance, produce, distribute and use sociotechnical solutions to address the needs and challenges of health systems in a sustainable way.

RIH refers to the innovation as well as to the organization that develops and makes it available to intended users. The principles, values and requirements of RIH are applied throughout a technology’s lifecycle, promoting the best social and environmental practices.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE TOOL?

The RIH Assessment Tool was developed to determine if an innovation can potentially be qualified as responsible, and if so, to assess its degree of responsibility. The Assessement Tool is available in a PDF format, on the right, if you wish to print a copy.

This User Guide will help you apply the Assessment Tool step-by-step.

IN WHAT CONTEXT WAS THE TOOL DEVELOPED?

The development of this Tool was inspired by the *Responsible Research and Innovation* (RRI) scholarship that identifies four process requirements to develop innovations in a responsible way:

  1. inclusion of diverse stakeholders;
  2. anticipation of risks, impacts and unintended consequences;
  3. reflexivity about the norms and values underlying innovations;
  4. responsiveness to unforeseen and undesirable changes.
