There is high production intensity in eHealth, and it is therefore recognized that models and methods are also needed when trying to develop customer-centered applications and systems. The purpose of translational medicine is to offer high-quality services, better health outcomes, and efficiency through innovations. The aim of this analysis is to clarify the importance of intensity thinking in the eHealth sector as a common design challenge of professionals and cooperators. Awareness of intensity thinking is one key area of consideration when reaching for translational design targets in eHealth, and it is thus also useful in the diagnostic and formative evaluation phases. Cooperation by different professionals is needed when creating common aims and missions in eHealth design. When aspects of care intensity are comprehended as fundamental to evaluation strategies, a more solid basis for successful innovation policy can be reached.
