What Is Our Job?

By center_for_innovation

Our job is to connect people, to interact with them in a way that leaves them better than when we found them, more able to get where they'd like to go. Seth Godin

 

When I (AJ) stumbled upon this quote the other day, it hit me that this really hits what our job is in health care, and working through service design and design thinking to transform the experience and deliver of health and health care. Enjoy!

Medisafe

 

When you are managing your prescriptions and day-to-day life happens, you can't always rely on your memory. Especially with certain prescriptions. This was the hard lesson the founders of Medisafe discovered when their father, forgetting he had already taken his daily prescription, accidentally overdosed.

Medisafe is a platform designed for those with multiple prescriptions and is available on both iOS and Android smartphones, as well as Android Watch. We connected with Medisafe's Jon Michaeli to talk about how Medisafe is enabling people to power their own health, as well as helping to benefit Health Care as a whole through the simple focus of medical compliance.

Reevaluating the Value of Primary Care using Design Thinking

By center_for_innovation

 

Design Thinking

 

It may seem a little out of the ordinary, a healthcare presentation at a design conference, but CFI designer Allison Matthews and primary care provider Marc Matthews presented at the Oslo Systemic Design Conference at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design in Norway. This symposium series explored the interdisciplinary development of design thinking as a progressive practice through systems thinking. Graduate students, academic professionals, and advanced practitioners from around the globe joined in the conversation. The overall question posed was, “How can we reinvent and innovate the relationship between design and systems thinking?”

Marc and Allison Matthews presented a talk entitled, [...]

Keeley Blog Post

One of the best sources for new healthcare innovations is front-line staff – the proverbial boots-on-the-ground employees. However, in order to tap into their creativity, organizations need to find ways to provide employees with “thinking time” — a critical component to enable creative thinking — empowering employees to work on projects they are passionate about outside of their normal work time.

Innovation in health care has never been more important. However, in health care, where days are carved up into time slots with patients and appointments, “free” time is hard to come by. Time literally [...]

Exploring End of Life Care

 

FRONTLINE followed renowned New Yorker writer and Boston surgeon Atul Gawande as he explores the relationships doctors have with patients who are nearing the end of life. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying, and shows how doctors are often remarkably untrained, ill-suited and uncomfortable talking about chronic illness and death with their patients.
