This case describes an innovation partnership procurement strategy by a community care health organization to procure a digital solution able to support both caregivers and older adults receiving homecare services. Vendor submissions proposed both existing technologies and new solutions that were challenging to evaluate. An existing technology was procured and first pilot tested in a laboratory setting prior to a field trial with seniors and their caregivers in the home. Recruitment of seniors to participate was unsuccessful. The importance of early engagement of seniors and greater clarity in partnership expectations were key learning outcomes of this case.
