Business ecosystems are evolutionary business environments that go through various life-cycle stages. Ecosystemic business models are rather complex in emergence and evolution in comparison to incumbent organizations’ business models. Ecosystemic business models are needed especially in the area of connected health (i.e., for the efficient utilization of heterogeneous data and efficient improvement of service delivery to support timely decision making) where there is an urgent need to overcome boundaries between the different actors in public-private partner ecosystems. This empirical research portrays four scenarios for ecosystemic business modeling for connected health. The study adopts a qualitative case study approach.
