The Social Return on Investment (SROI) methodology, proposed by the Roberts Enterprise Development Fund (REDF) takes into account the added value for every stakeholder [1]. To our opinion this methodology is an alternative methodology for traditional economic evaluations and very suitable to assess the impact of digital health, even in an early stage of development. Within the European RE-SAMPLE project, the SROI methodology is used to assess the societal impact of the foreseen digital innovation. The project focuses on people who are living with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) accompanied by complex chronic conditions (CCC). To establish impact of the digital innovation developed within the RE-SAMPLE project a participatory approach is followed and together with all stakeholders the needs and preferences of end-users are elicited. The aim of this workshop is not solely to present the SROI method as a methodology to assess the impact the digital health, but also to enthuse others to use this methodology and to provide an alternative for traditional (economic) evaluations. During the workshop the full process of a forecast SROI will be executed together with the attendees in a number of steps, interspersed with presentations to explain the SROI methodology and to present the RE-SAMPLE project. The attendees will learn the basics about the SROI methodology and how this methodology is used within the European RE-SAMPLE project to ensure impact of the digital innovation for every stakeholder (societal impact). Next to this, the attendees will, by means of a group discussion, form a first opinion about the SROI methodology.
