#TBT To The Forum at Transform

By AJ Montpetit

Connecting at the Forum

 

Written By Contributing Guest Writer: Jessica Solberg

When I walked into the 2013 Transform symposium at the Mayo Clinic Civic Center, I was not sure what to expect. As part of the media team, I was assigned to write about my experience at “Connecting at the Forum”, an area designated to see innovative work from different Transform community members. I become more knowledgeable on areas the community feels healthcare is lacking and discussed how we can improve these areas to better serve the patients. Circulating the room, with doctors, nurses, journalists, and other students I was able to see many interesting symposium projects that the members had put together, as well as hear their opinions, concerns, and positive feedback on what was being presented. Two projects stuck out to me and both were improvements made by technology.

Entrepreneurship Growing in Mayo Clinic

By center_for_innovation

Mayo Clinic Ventures

 

When you think about entrepreneurs and breakthrough inventions, you might imagine someone tinkering with a gadget (perhaps a doohickey or thingamajig) in a garage. You might not, however, picture a Mayo researcher tinkering with peptides to fight hypertension, creating a tracking system for viruses, or fashioning a tool to make medical information easier to read for those with poor vision. But our friends at Mayo Clinic Ventures would like us to, and a recent article series in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal gets under the hood to explore why.

Mayo's efforts to encourage entrepreneurship and support startups is not only good for medicine, but as writer Katharine Grayson suggests, [...]

How To Find The Best Solution

By AJ Montpetit

The faster we make our ideas tangible, the sooner we will be able to evaluate them, refine them, and zero in on the best solution. Tim Brown

 

 

When dealing with design, innovation and design thinking, it's tempting to stay in the conversation mode while discussing our thoughts and ideas to problems. The faster we can build something tangible, the better. By creating that first prototype quickly, we can work through the issues that might not be recognizable until the idea is born into reality. Moving quickly through this phase helps generate solutions, recognize success, and move through failures.

Our Transform community was built around the idea [...]

How To Bring Innovation To Health Care

By AJ Montpetit

 

Innovation in a clinical setting can be a challenge, working through the challenges of incremental innovation and big innovation. Our team here at the Center for Innovation met with the Yale School of Management on how the challenge of big revolutionary innovation is tempered with the challenge of incremental innovation, and the balance that they both play in creating a successful culture of innovation.

Innovation of any size or shape is near impossible in a vacuum setting; it inherently requires collaboration in order to succeed. Our Transform symposium was put together in order to build a community of [...]

Mars-Inspired Care

 

Guest Blog Post By: Lada Bogenschutz 

As technology advances, so does the ability to understand human behavior. Predictive analytics is a tool used to do just that. By studying people’s behavior, industries can determine the best way to approach consumers. In the past five years, different companies have increasingly used predictive analytics in order to see how they can more effectively apply their services to customers.

Right now, people utilize predictive analytics in diverse ways. Recent articles highlight the power of predictive analytics in retail industries. In a 2012 New Yorker article, “How Companies Learn Your Secrets,” Charles Duhigg explains how Target [...]

The Strongest Revenge is Forgiveness

By AJ Montpetit

The Strongest Revenge is Forgiveness. Dr. Amit Sood

 

 

It's another great start to a week, and we wanted to feature one of our Transform 2014 speakers with a quote today. 

Dr. Sood is not only the director of research in the Complementary and Integrative Medicine Program at Mayo Clinic, but has also developed an innovative approach toward stress management and resiliency. He incorporates concepts from neuroscience, psychology, philosophy and spirituality, and has authored "The Mayo Clinic Guide to Stress-Free Living" on the subject.
