Description

Stanford Medicine X is once again joining forces with Palo Alto-based firm IDEO to offer ePatients the opportunity to collaborate with designers, researchers, technologists and health-care providers to spark new ideas for improving patient care. Participants in last year’s Stanford Medicine X | IDEO Design Challenge called the workshop “a very healing process” and praised the experience for allowing creativity to “flourish and grow.”

At the day-long event, participants will be divided into teams and each group will include an ePatient who has experience managing a chronic disease and who uses technology to help facilitate his or her own care. Using a problem statement based on the ePatients’ chronic illness and application, the teams will work through the design-thinking process to develop potential solutions.

The goal of the workshop is to engage stakeholders in a design setting to solve a patient-centered health problem as a unified team, and to share their design and experience with attendees at Medicine X. It is meant to inspire collaboration and ignite creativity among a diversity of thinkers, both challenge participants and Medicine X audience members.

We are thrilled to partner with IDEO and offer this incredible experience for Medicine X attendees.
