A Design Thinking Problem Every 15 Minutes

The Privilege of a being a Healthcare Stakeholder

Doctor as Designer
Feb 3, 2015 · 1 min read

I saw this post from @lennynaar who is a design strategist at @helixcentre, a design team embedded in a hospital. I totally agree with his sentiment!


I am reprising this old post from when I got back from sabbatical:

“I had my first clinic today after an entire year of being on sabbatical with no patient care responsibilities…it was really exciting and rewarding to see my patients with diabetes and their families. I now view the clinical world with a new perspective as a design thinker.”

“Every visit, every encounter with a patient is a design opportunity waiting to be realized!”

I tweet and blog about health, technology, and participatory design as “Doctor as Designer”. For blogpost updates, sign up here. Please sign up for the healthdesignby.us mailing list and follow us on Twitter and Facebook!
