Event Details

Hacking Health, in partnership with Joule, is bringing 
together stakeholders inside 
and outside the healthcare sector and empowering them to build innovative, meaningful solutions to healthcare challenges at Winnipeg's first ever Design Jam.

On August 22nd and 23rd we will gather together with professional facilitation for this incredible session. Everyone one of us has something to contribute including unique insight, ideas, and experience, which all come together to provide solutions. Hacking Health unites patients, healthcare professionals, physicians, technologists, designers, entrepreneurs, decision-makers, business leaders, researchers, administrators, and governments to work collaboratively and solve tangible issues. 

No previous experience? No problem. This event will be facilitated by industry experts who will help guide you on the path to success even if you've never heard of the term “Design Thinking” before. We all see the challenges patients, healthcare professionals, and the healthcare system are facing, so let's get together and do something about it!

We truly believe that it is by joining forces and tearing down silos that we will contribute to global health.



 

 

What is the Design Jam?

A Design Jam is a fast-paced facilitated event that brings together people from different backgrounds and skills to focus on creating innovative solutions to specific pre-identified challenges using the design thinking framework.

The Jam begins with the two first stages of the design thinking process:

Define and Empathise

The various challenges are presented and clarified to participants. A brainstorming session begins, which ends in the formation of teams, of which each will have a clear challenge to begin being working on.

Then it's all about rapidly building and testing solutions with teams moving through the Ideate, Prototype and Testing stages as they work towards the final presentation of their solutions to hospital staff and Design Jam participants.

The Design Jam provides the perfect framework to create elegant, creative and real-world solutions to the challenges identified by end-users and medical practitioners. These solutions have the potential to evolve into sustainable business ideas that may be implemented by companies or the healthcare industry.

 

Why Should I Participate?

Collisions of ideas, practical applications and connections are made through these events. Aside from the fact that you are guaranteed to meet some interesting, diverse and motivated people, you will also be able to work on solutions to challenges that could be implemented in the healthcare setting hospital and might even help those who are working hard to saves lives.

A Design Jam provides an incredible opportunity to explore, create new, network and be creative!
