The Healthcare in Shape symposium welcomes all healthcare professionals, researchers, designers, policy makers and students with an interest or expertise in rethinking, designing, implementing and evaluating novel solutions and policies for a healthcare system in shape.
Designers and healthcare providers share a common goal: to keep individuals, communities and societies in shape, addressing health issues along a continuum from wellness to serious illness. How to design an evidence-based, future-proof, high quality, sustainable and inclusive health system? Join the discussions and interactions and gain new insights and connections.
Highlights from Healthcare In Shape Symposium 2023
The day began with NWO president Marcel Levi reminding us that our healthcare systems have never been more advanced. At the same time, the pressures on healthcare are forcing us to radically rethink the way we deliver care and deal with workforce shortages. Alec Momont from Apple argued for a designer’s oath, like the doctor’s oath. A designer’s oath to design where form follows emotion, to be inclusive, to be curious by asking the question behind the question, and to dare to ask. Yoko Sen, artist and founder of Sen Sound, took us through her personal story of what it means to be a designer for health. How a personal experience compelled her to take action and transform health systems in a profound way. We concluded with a moving interview with Roland van Esch, country manager at Zimmer Biomet, about what it means to be both a health manager and a healthcare user at the same time.
