This chapter aims to obtain better knowledge of health innovations, their key drivers, and dynamics. It focuses on the interaction between two agents: health service providers and patients. It presents a case study that highlights the importance of modifying the quantity and quality of the health information provided to patients, and the way in which that information is provided. The case study consists of the substitution of one educational programme for diabetes patients for a new one. The study provides a number of important insights into the real impact of the interaction between health providers and patients on long-term health status.
