Want to Reimagine the Big Issues in Healthcare?
Join us each year for Innovate4Outcomes®
The biggest healthcare challenges of our time require fresh, collaborative thinking. That’s why we host this event – advocating for a design-thinking approach that brings stakeholders together, with unique perspectives and free of preconceived notions.
Why Design Thinking?
The design-thinking process is an approach to innovation where participants challenge assumptions about approaching and solving problems that may or may not be clearly defined. It allows prototyping and testing of new solutions from a blue sky approach. It centers on understanding the people who will be helped.

2022: New Approaches to Antimicrobial Resistance
This year’s challenge has been identified by the World Health Organization as one of the ten most pressing current global health challenges: Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR). AMR has many facets which are aggravated by siloed care delivery pathways and social issues, among them treatment resistance, challenges in developing new therapies, provider education and health equity.

2020: Healthcare’s COVID Pivot
The pandemic forced every aspect of care delivery to quickly pivot. It was this environment that inspired us to launch the first cross-healthcare-industry design thinking event. In 2020, we discussed a wide variety of far-reaching systemic challenges and generated innovative solution ideas that combined technology with robotics and explored new use cases for virtual communication and social media.
