INNOVATE HEALTHCARE NATIONWIDE

Collaboration and design thinking

In May 2015 Hacking Health Milano hosted Italy’s first-ever health hackathon. Since then, it has ramped up to mobilize the whole nation using design thinking to re-invent health services.

18 months later, for their second annual event, Hacking Health Milano succeeded in engaging not one, but an amazing 11 hospitals and national healthcare systems in their process. This year HH Milano decided to focus on design thinking and engage participants in a much longer challenge.

By setting up a 9-month long collaboration with leading university Milano-Bicocca, HH Milano allowed over 100 students from diverse backgrounds to gain insights into patient journeys and staff challenges.

It’s part of my job to scout for new ideas and assess their value. We’re part of a network of 29 hospitals which share innovative ideas…
