Abstract: Connected Health innovation can be an opportunity for companies to develop and grow, if they take opportunity to develop solutions for healthcare. In this paper, we discuss a case study where a very small company in Ireland developed a connected health solution, but in doing this, discovered a number of risks which they faced. Working with a research from the University of Limerick (author 1), they developed mitigation strategies to avoid these risks, and subsequently developed an updated version of their initial connected health solution. This software, Global-MN, has been implemented by a charity in India, Varanasi Children’s Hospital. We present information about both the initial and updated product, illustrating how overcoming the risks has resulted in the company redesigning their product for a global market. Data entered via this software is now providing Varanasi Children’s Hospital with information and analysis, which, in turn, is allowing them to provide a better service and improve the nourishment of children in India.
