The Conversation Continues

 

Guest Post by Chris Foster, Vice President of Booz Allen Hamilton

 

Transform is a unique moment in time when healthcare professionals converge in Rochester, Minnesota and for three days challenge one another, to imagine and re-imagine the healthcare industry we all want to be a part of and know is possible. The gathering will no doubt provide valuable returns on burning healthcare issues – patient experience, population healthcare, individual wellness, connected care, facilitating change – but what exact “aha” moment are we all hoping to achieve at the conference this year?

Every healthcare [...]

The Experience Trap: The Power of Not Knowing

By center_for_innovation

The Wanderlust of Creativity

 

 

Guest Blog Post By Transform 2013 Presenter, Susan Mazer

 

When I first heard about the experience trap, I seriously did not get it. I was struggling to use my experience to solve problems that did not exist even a decade ago. It wasn't working. Even being a good student didn't help when I went back to earn a Ph.D. a few years ago. I needed to break the paradigm in which I saw the world so a new one could form.

Creative new solutions do not come from experience. They come from the wanderlust of curiosity mixed together with [...]

My Motivation For Designing For Health

By mkcawcutt

 

The State of Design Culture

 

 

Blog Post Written By Center for Innovation Designer, Michael Cawcutt

 

I recently read an article pushed to me via a sidebar email conversation. Cole Peters, the author of an article titled, "Design Culture is a Frozen..." Peters gives his perspective on how the design community spend's the majority of it's time making designs that seems to pad their CV's rather then trying to solve real world issues.

This made me reflect on my own experiences as a designer while over the last few years I've transitioned from 'agency life' to designing for healthcare. [...]

Having The Mind Of A Child

By center_for_innovation

The greatest invention in the world is the mind of a child. Thomas Edison

 

 

How many of us spent hours doodling in MS Paint just to fill the spaces up in various colors? Just the joy of scribbling around and every new piece was another work of art. There is something we can all learn from the mind of a child, and as innovators, we can work hard to bring back that type of open-minded, unlearned, and truly creative mindset back.

Take some time this week to doodle. Draw. Sketch. You don't have to act like a child to think like one. That's the beauty of innovation!

Have a fantastic [...]

Telling the Stories of Innovation

By center_for_innovation

 

Guest Blog Post Written by: Nolan Meyer 

The Mayo Clinic’s Transform symposium bring the brightest minds to Mayo Clinic to relay what is being done to improve the state of medicine. In 2010, Jesse Dylan, noted film-maker, founder and CEO of Wondros, and son of Bob Dylan, spoke at Transform about how he works to broadcast the stories of those who have trouble distributing a message. As a multimedia guru, Dylan has a unique skillset to do so. His talk began with a sampling of the film work he and his team had done, featuring Bill Clinton, Oprah Winfrey, Michelle Obama, and Matthew McConaughey. Jesse’s specialization is using his multimedia expertise [...]

Connecting The Dots

By center_for_innovation

Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality per se. Charles Eames

 

 

One of the greatest assets to innovation is to have a diverse group of individuals, interests, backgrounds and education, to bring new and original ideas to the table. You can often be surprised with the connections you discover that are shared across multiple industries that might not have any overlap. Or the similar obstacles you share.

We spent this last weekend at the #MakeHealth Fest" href="https://storify.com/pfanderson/we-makehealth-fest" target="_blank">We #MakeHealth Fest at the University of Michigan, and discovered some great ideas for Health Care through the lens of the Maker community [...]
