Session: Health innovation without design is useless

This session will discuss the emerging role of user centred design methodologies to consider , the user , the operating model, the metrics , the culture . the reason much of our innovation in healthcare doesn’t deliver the expected outcomes is that it fails to truly consider the human and systemic aspects of change. We will discuss how this can be turned round to better integrate digital opportunities into re-invented work flows.
