Keynote presentation — A systems rethink: Healthcare innovation through the prism of human-centred services
Dr. Peter Jones, Associate Professor, Strategic Foresight and Innovation MDES program, OCAD University, and author of Design for Care: Innovating Healthcare Experience
Dr. Jones presents an emerging view of healthcare innovation as the design and creative management of human-centred services. The major challenges in today’s healthcare systems demand holistic management — a practice of making design decisions — to innovate at the levels of policy, process and patients. A whole systems approach helps us rethink healthcare as a large-scale design challenge, where services, people, communications — as well as facilities and business models — are all serving to co-produce care for people in our service and communities. Peter shares new work since Design for Care was published that illustrates how these approaches are quickly becoming successful in North American health systems.
