This chapter examines the role of process in innovation. It analyses an interesting evolutionary perspective and presents empirical evidence from an example of the intra-ocular lens and the treatment of glaucoma. It focuses on systems of innovation, arguing that generation and delivery of new medical practices is dependent on the creation of sophisticated innovation systems that rely on the specialization, diversification, and co-ordination of activities that are complementary to health care institutions.

Keywords:   process innovation, glaucoma, intra-ocular lens, health care systems innovation, medical innovation
