This is a presentation of 26 slides from an eight-week project that originated in the Human Factors course taught in the Science Bacc. Program at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) in Spring of 2012. It was a community parntership with MCAD, the Penny George Institute (PGI), and Allina Hospitals and Clinics.
It started on February 8 when Allina representative Jess Roberts conducted a workshop for the class at MCAD titled “What Is Wellness?”
Its official kick-off was March 7 when the class of 11 students visited the Penny George Institute for a tour and an interview with Dr. Greg Plotnikoff.
A team of six MCAD students (with one instructor and one coach) titled Team Micro set as its goal the improvement of patient and provider consultative experiences by a visual communications “rebalancing” that promotes and sustains holistic health outcomes. Deliverables ranged from intake form textual/visual redesign to reconceptualization of patient experiences at PGI as a journey of wellness examined through the eyes of three personas by an "information architecture" of visually expressed links and nodes.
The team create this presentation and two other report documents in order to help PGI fully realize and practice its vision-mission excerpted here:
"The George Institute seeks to transform health care by blending the art of healing and the science of curing to optimize the health of whole person, mind, and spirit."
