How to Change a Company's Point of View with Innovation

By Center for Innovation Center for Innovation

 

Ron-Amodeo---Perspective

 

 

Post written by Ronald Amodeo

 

A great weakness of corporate innovation is how quickly it's applied to the easiest problems. If product development is wanted, start an innovation team. If IP is escaping, capture and commercialize it with an innovation process. If investments are too conservative, create an innovation fund to increase "risk" by seeding new ventures. We see corporate innovation fixating on customer experiences, reducing costs through experiments and prototypes, and imagining futures that will likely never happen (but worry everyone).

Don't misunderstand. Executing the activities above is very challenging. But on the tree of corporate complexity, these are low hanging fruit. [...]

Balancing Competing Priorities: Managing Illness vs. Living Life

By Center for Innovation Center for Innovation

 

Victor-Montori---Balancing-Competing-Priorities

 

Post originally found on Victor Montori's Minimally Disruptive Medicine Blog

 

The high treatment burden in chronic respiratory illness is very real. As a 28 year old living with Cystic Fibrosis (CF), when healthy I am usually on 16+ medications and engage in over 2 hours of treatments daily. I currently take up to 47 tablets daily, depending on my food intake. I usually have 1-2 hospital admissions per year lasting 10-14 days each, for routine intravenous antibiotics and intense chest physiotherapy to clear out my lungs. Of course, these figures skyrocket when I have an exacerbation.

This treatment schedule isn’t always easy to manage when integrated into the contextt of trying to live a “normal” life; including professional employment, post graduate studies, social affairs, playing mum to two beloved dogs, maintaining a house and being a fabulous wife.  I’d like to provide some further insights into what the treatment burden involves for individuals like myself.

Is it Time Your Car Gives YOU a Check-Up?

By Center for Innovation Center for Innovation

 

Can your vehicle make you healthier?

 

 

Post written by Gregory Thomas

 

Over the last five years, we have seen the automotive industry transform their original intent to produce high end “infortainment” (music, media, etc.) to applications that enhance and even save lives through the same technology.

With the advent of these smart tools and other technological devices, the possibility of performing consumer “in-field” diagnoses has grown expeditiously. These developments are converging to create an eclectic mash-up that is redefining health and wellness for today’s consumer. These possibilities come at an appropriate time during the discussion of the nation’s health programs.

Mapping Your Healthcare Journey

Pivot---Journey

 

 

Post written by Pivot Design Group

 

The seed of each idea comes from a conversation that starts with “What if…” and ends with “Wouldn’t it be great if…” We can prototype for organizational teams, project managers, start-ups and more. Prototyping helps bring focus to the key user interactions of a product or service. Without coming to a final design solution, it’s a way to get an idea off the ground and get feedback — all you need is the seed of an idea and we can help with the rest.

Unhampered by technological barriers and business constraints we can bring the [...]
