    Abstract

    In this chapter we study the innovation process of an eHealth application which emerged as a user-driven, local project. The eHealth application is based on a communication platform that creates a network around a particular patient who is in need of regular care and the different parties involved in the patient’s care, and is aimed at facilitating the communication and coordination of this care net-work. We trace the innovation and implementation process, and explore, firstly, to which extent and in which form different dimensions of responsibility, such as anticipation, reflexivity, inclusiveness and responsiveness (Stilgoe et al., 2013) were present along the innovation process. Secondly, we con-sider if and how the regional and partly local, bottom up nature of the innovation network was con-ducive to enacting dimensions of responsibility.
