Theme Week: Health


Design’s potential impact on health has been a hot topic for some time, and is increasing steadily in visibility. Hospitals themselves are embracing design thinking, with the influential Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation, and a Patient Experience Summit coming up at Cleveland Clinic (check out their powerful video on empathy, a key principle for design.) Whether with new, serene dentist offices; apps that help you improve your golf game or track when you move throughout the day; or billboards that make drinkable water, design effects our health.
