Topic: Customer Co-creation Value in Healthcare Service        

Speaker: Prof. Jill Sweeney

Host: Associate Professor Yao Tang

Date: 15:30-17:30, Nov 22, 2017

Venue: A 618, the New Main Building



This article explores in-depth what health care customers actually do when they co-create value. Combining previously published research with data collected from depth interviews, field observation, and focus groups, the authors identify distinct styles of health care customer value co-creation practice. Importantly, the authors show how customers can contribute to their own value creation through their own (self) activities in managing their health care. Building on past work in service-dominant (S-D) logic, consumer culture theory and social practice theory, the authors identify “roles,” “activities,” and “interactions” that underlie customer co-creation of value in health care.
