This is just the beginning     Post by Stephanie Quilao   In 2007, I was working at Microsoft as an Enthusiast (Consumer) Evangelist when Steve Jobs took to the stage to introduce iPhone to the world. I remember staring at the live stream on my laptop thinking, “Apple wins.” In 8 short years, the iPhone has significantly changed the way we live and work, and has created billion dollar industries. When Tim Cook took to the stage in 2014 to introduce Apple Watch, I had the exact same feeling as I did back then, “Apple wins…again.” The Apple Watch is not just another wearable, it’s life management from your wrist. For health and wellness, the Apple Watch elevates the wearables game from being utilitarian to a holistic experience. Creating a healthy life is not just a sum of independent trackable tasks; it’s a bigger picture of our lifestyle.

  Doctor as Designer   When Joyce Lee, M.D., M.P.H., took her sabbatical at Stanford, she discovered design and design thinking and her whole approach to life was turned upside-down. And she has never been more excited. When you see the transformation that just her office took (check out her blog here) into become a collaborative space, or how she approaches life with her two children and family, it's evident that design thinking has radically transformed her work and life for the better. We were able to catch Dr. Lee during her busy schedule to connect online and have an amazing conversation about design thinking in health care, patients as part of the collaborative process, and how design enables people to power their own health. Catch the whole conversation after the break!
