Vital Signs: Design Thinking for Healthcare Innovation

March 2011

Healthcare organizations frequently include the word innovation in their mission statements, but many fail to deliver. Design Intersections 2011 explores the role of design in healthcare innovation, including how design thinking and methodologies can be used to improve and - in some cases - reinvent healthcare systems, delivery, environments, experiences, and outcomes. Presentations will also include exploration of human factors and behavioral research, small- and large-scale system case studies, and more.
