Patient Care:

Healthcare innovations to medical devices and manufacturing will enable devices to be more modular and more adaptable while also improving the patient experience. 3D printing and virtual simulations are creating new opportunities to improve the personalization, quality and safety of treatment and the optimization of the patient experience. 3D printing can also offer faster prototypes and the creation of personalized prosthetics

Design Thinking + Problem Solving 

Design thinking has become a vital approach in fueling business innovations. What is the product? How is it delivered in a way that makes the consumer feel good about the experience? Is the service one that won't become obsolete?

 

In health care, the experience is the product. The term "design thinking" characterizes a problem-solving approach that goes beyond process analysis or quality improvement. In a Harvard Business Review article, Tim Brown, CEO of the design consultancy IDEO, said:

"Design thinking can be described as a discipline that uses the designer's sensibility and methods to match people's needs with what is technologically feasible and what a viable business strategy can convert into customer value and market opportunity."

These sensibilities could include empathy, creativity, ambidextrous thinking, systems thinking, a human-centered focus, and deep curiosity about the world. Design methods include ethnographic and observational techniques, visualization, prototyping, sketching, storytelling, and brainstorming.
