How can a bold creative problem solving process transform your organization?
Design Thinking enables people to build skills for innovating, including the
ability to think creatively, work collaboratively with others, and implement
innovations. It provides a structured process for addressing challenges in all
aspects of our lives.
Join your Inforum HealthcareNEXT colleagues for a morning of learning -- and
doing–- as you experience an immersive, rapid cycle activity that touches on all
areas of the design thinking process. You will not only learn what design
thinking is, you will leave inspired to take action in your own organization.
Our guide will be Deborah Parizek, Executive Director of Henry Ford Learning Institute, a champion of design thinking’s role in changing how we think and learn, and a frequent presenter who provides actionable information with real life applications as she shares HFLI’s evolving model of success with schools, communities and businesses around the world.

A patient's perspective on health care options is rapidly changing with a greater demand to understand health care's value proposition. With the advent of high deductible plans, increased transparency of service, access, quality and price, health care is being driven by patients as consumers more than ever before.
The power of choice is causing disruption in how health care is accessed and delivered, especially as patients are increasingly responsible and accountable for their health care expenses.
This panel discussion will explore the evolving role of the patient as a consumer and the implications of these changes for the industry, through the lenses of population health, patient empowerment and accountability, and behavior change.
