HxR Design Award Winners 2016 – Harken Health
The healthcare industry is in the midst of a great deal of disruption and change. We are trying to heal the pain, incrementally improve the situation, and explore how the latest innovations in technology can help people care for themselves and improve the care they receive. We know that technology isn’t always the answer – sometimes it either doesn’t solve the issue or introduces more issues than it solves . How can we work together to deliver meaningful change? Human-centered design can provide us with the method. It starts with a deep understanding of and empathy for the people we serve as it provides the necessary information and inspiration to direct our efforts in the right places. We can leverage motivational psychology to design systems that engage and empower as opposed to control. We can work within our organization to make the changes that need to be made in order to bring a fundamentally improved experience of health to the marketplace, by fostering a culture of creativity and collaboration.
Organizations are taking a strong interest in design — realizing that understanding the needs, expectations and contexts in which people interact and use products and services leads not only to improvements in their current offerings, but ideas and opportunities for new innovations. With this realization has come immense investment in design talent and training. But having design talent and creativity does not ensure success. Design is not just a new tool to add to a growing collection. As these skills and individuals are added to the mix in many teams, both designers and non-designers alike often struggle to work together and produce great work. Design is a shift in mindset that influences how we behave and make decisions. In order for organizations to make use of design they must be set up to do so. In this presentation we’ll look at the characteristics and cultures of organizations that are able to effectively create, collaborate on, and produce great design and explore strategies to foster innovation by building better teams, training and inspiring people, helping them use new tools to work together, identify problems and break down silos that stop progress.
ImagineCare powered by Dartmouth-Hitchcock is creating a new standard for a person’s health experience. By combining disruptive health care business models, taking advantage of cloud-based IoT and analytics platforms, and embracing experiential innovation, ImagineCare has been able to build a human-focused offering that enables people to care for themselves, network into proactive clinical support, and achieve better outcomes. This keynote presentation will explore how ImagineCare has tackled the challenges of innovation from inside a health system and how they are now bringing a truly revolutionary digital health offering to market.
Invent Health: Building an Innovation Nation
We are at critical inflection point in our history where we are in a better position than ever before to leverage the American spirit of invention to create ways for people to live more independently, in better health, and with greater dignity.
The HHS IDEA Lab has led the Department’s work in expanding public access, championing open innovation, and creating opportunities for entrepreneurs to contribute. The Invent Health initiative marks out a new frontier: innovation in the design and manufacture of hardware, such as medical and assistive devices. We are asking questions of our colleagues inside and outside government, aiming to clarify barriers and lay out guideposts as we explore how the Maker movement is helping us build toward an Innovation Nation.
For example: How might we empower small-scale designers, builders, and developers to find creative solutions to challenges we see across the landscape of health and human services? What will happen when everyone has access to the tools and information they need to solve their own problems — and share their ideas with others?
