Catalyze Innovation that Advances Health

The Process of Design Thinking with David Webster, Partner, IDEO

Putting it all together -- David Webster of IDEO describes the overall Design Thinking process. He is joined by Steve Kinsey, Director of MedStar Inventor Services and our Course Guide Brittany Weinberg to discuss how inventors can leverage the IDEO Design Thinking process to catalyze innovation in the healthcare environment. IDEO is a leading design and innovation consulting company.

This session reflects on the parallels between the IDEO process and our work at MedStar.  However, some key differences exist.  For example, at MedStar our designers are our frontline people and often have the “empathy” (user understanding) needed to begin the design.   The discussion helps identify some differences and clarifies how to apply Design Thinking in healthcare.
