Description

Join us for a debriefing of our pre-conference IDEO Design Challenge workshop, as participants share their new discoveries about design thinking and patient empowerment.

Dennis Boyle is one of the founding members of the design and innovation firm IDEO and has worked as a project leader for many of the firm’s start-up and established clients including Apple, Palm, Tivo, Handspring, HP, Dell, Proctor and Gamble, and others. Dennis is now one of the leaders of the Health and Wellness practice at IDEO. Mr. Boyle is also a Consulting Assistant Professor at Stanford and teaches classes in the Design Division of the ME department.

Nick Dawson believes that healthcare is about humans taking care of other humans, and there’s no other industry like it. He has spent most of his career following his passion for continually improving how we do the work of caring for others. 

In his view, patient experiences and staff happiness should be the top priority. When it is, everything else follows. 

Today, he is focused on helping health systems develop a modern strategic focus based on human-centered design. When we work openly and collaboratively, always with patients and staff at the center of our work, good things follow—revenue, loyalty, outcomes, quality and happiness. 

He also tracks disruptive innovations in healthcare and other industries and works with hospitals to apply the same thinking to their strategic plans.
