Patients As Partners: Embracing Patient-Driven Design and Innovation

1:30pm - 2:30pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4405

Description

Participatory design approaches, such as “design thinking” and “maker movement”, involving both patients and caregivers have the potential to create innovative and disruptive health solutions that improve care experiences for everyone. In this high-impact session featuring 3 “ignite talks”, design experts will showcase how we can move health care forward in the continuum of design to complement the three concurrent strands fueling the surge of participatory and DIY mentality today: “I want to do it,” “I can do it,” and “let’s do it together”.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Explain the evolving role of patient as a collaborator, designer, maker, co-creator, and expert
  • Illustrate the importance of human-centered design for redesign of tools, technologies, and systems in healthcare
  • Identify approaches to embrace and foster design-led innovation in your organization
  • Discuss maker movement as a model for encouraging patient-centered participatory design within healthcare
