Partnering to Design Together – An Innovative Workshop with Patients | HH Toronto

May 26, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

‘Partnering to Design Together’ will connect digital health innovators with patients to explore new techniques and resources through ‘design thinking’. Design thinking approaches complex problems with the philosophy that solutions should be created with, and not just for, end-users. Guided by the Hacking Health team, participants will adopt a design thinking mindset, as they identify problems, create innovative solutions and present ideas to the Hacking Health panel to be developed.

Key Features

  • Learn from and network with industry-leading experts, health enthusiasts and patients
  • Collaborate with colleagues from different disciplines to develop healthcare innovation
  • Increase knowledge and awareness of design thinking and patient-centred design
  • Develop and own a refined statement about a health innovation need and desired outcome for a specific patient

‘Partnering to Design Together’ will be an intense, collaborative, hands-on learning experience, that will enhance your understanding of the design thinking process. If you are a change agent or an innovation champion in your organization, join like-minded industry professionals on Sunday, May 26 to learn how to create digital health solutions through design thinking.
