Designing for Inclusion in Health Innovation
Innovation is less about new, shiny things and more about deep problem-solving and reframing. To address public health issues or create patient-centered innovations, we must understand the needs and priorities of different communities and ensure that innovations truly improve health outcomes and reflect the people for whom they serve. Design-thinking can engage with diverse patients and consumers, but in order for a human-centered design to gain traction and remain an organizational priority, there must be buy-in from all levels and stakeholders. This session explores a multi-faceted approach to advancing inclusivity and equity in healthcare to improve outcomes and commercial success, to build an inclusive workforce and empower patients to be a more meaningful part of the design process.
