Location Health2B, Forskningsparken Gaustadalleen 21, 0349 Oslo
FREE - In-person event

Healthcare systems are in the midst of change.

Patients are becoming increasingly knowledgeable and demand more from their care providers, while the administrative load for the healthcare system is increasing and budgets decreasing. Technology is advancing faster than the market can adapt. Politics, legislation, processes and cultural challenges limit progress. The public sector relies on capacity from private actors who compete for the same services. And as if this wasn't enough, start-ups are challenging established players with new and disruptive services.

The future of the healthcare system is shaped in the present - it is the result of your interactions, decisions and how you work. What do you want the future of your healthcare ecosystems to look like? How can we come together, explore and co-create healthcare for the better? This is a shared challenge and also one of the biggest opportunities we can address with design.

Save the date for the 21st of November at 8.30 AM and join us in-person to co-explore the future of healthcare.

Learn from our design specialists about:

What design can bring to healthcare ecosystems, and a practical way on how to get started in seeing common obstacles and opportunities

→ How to unpack, reframe and gain an understanding of interconnected problems across an ecosystem

→ Move from high-level strategy to action

*Subject to change
