OpenIdeoBlogPostRealisation The following post was written by Ashley Jablow on the OpenIDEO website.   In our Healthy Ageing Challenge, OpenIDEO community members from across the globe came together to explore what health, wellbeing and ageing mean to them. Sharing over 300 inspirations and collaboratively designing 134 ideas, our community gravitated toward solutions that nurtured intergenerational and peer-to-peer relationships, celebrated and incentivised active lifestyles, cared for our caregivers, empowered people to plan for their futures and designed environments for thriving at every age. In the end, six winning ideas were chosen by the community, our challenge sponsor Mayo Clinic and OpenIDEO. While the challenge ended in late August, our momentum has continued to build since then. In September, Mayo Clinic's Center for Innovation hosted the 2013 Transform Symposium, a three-day, multi-disciplinary convening around health, innovation and design. Mayo Clinic, feeling inspired by our challenge and our community's efforts, decided to extend a last-minute invitation to OpenIDEO community members T. Annie Nguyen and Sylvia Stein to present their winning ideas during a 60-person workshop. Facilitated by IDEO's Gretchen Addi, the workshop was attended by a range of healthcare professionals, architects, designers and journalists, and served as a great chance for Annie and Sylvia to get feedback on their ideas.
Gerry Greaney     We sat down recently with Gerry Greaney, a Designer/Researcher at the Center for Innovation at Mayo Clinic, who is also a member of the Transform Core Team. We picked his brain about his involvement with planning and programming the Transform symposium, new things that were tried this year, as well as the role of innovation throughout healthcare. Listen to the whole interview after the break.

 

Transform2013Recap The Transform symposium took stage for the sixth year, bringing together people to collaborate on an ongoing dialogue to create meaningful and transformational change to health care. They came from across the globe, connecting not only in the physical space of the symposium, but also in our Community, On24 Virtual Conference, Twitter, Facebook, and even Second Life. We were honored to have the very talented John Hockenberry to moderate this year’s symposium, and the presenters that graced the stage were second to none. Thought-provoking discussions ranged from the need and benefits of distraction-free family dinners, innovative conceptual designs of wearable tech by local 5th graders, to redefining the word “care.” To close the conference, and unsuspecting presenter, Daniel Lamarre, President and CEO of Cirque du Soleil, entranced the audience with a presentation that brought the entire experience together.
