Design: Our study selected quality senior health enterprises and explored their success patterns through face-to-face semi-structured in-depth interviews with CEO of each enterprise in 2013. Setting: Thirty-three quality senior health enterprises in Taiwan. Participants: Thirty-three CEO's of enterprises were interviewed individually. Intervention: None. Main Outcome Measures: Core values and vision, historical development, organization structure, services/products provided, delivering channels, customer relationships and further development strategies. Results: Our results indicated success patterns for senior enterprises that there weremeeting diversified lifestyles and substitutive needs for the elderly and their caregivers, providing a total solution for actual/virtual integration and flexible one-stop shopping services. We classified these enterprises by used degree of clicks-and-mortar of services and residing situation of the elderly. Industry characteristics and policy implications were summarized. Conclusions: Our observations will serve as a primary evidenced base for enterprises developing their senior market, and also for opening dialogue between customers and enterprises to facilitate valuable opportunities for co-creation between the supply and demand sides.
