Rich with examples and spaces for ideation, Discovery Design will guide you step by step through understanding the complexity of your problem spaces in the hospital environment. It will walk you through the 8 phases of design and empower you to adopt the mindset of a designer as you go about your daily work — no previous design experience necessary. You will learn to: 

  • Use design methods to gain a rich understanding of the challenges facing clinicians, administrators, patients, and their families
  • Translate those needs into insights and solutions
  • Pilot those solutions in real-world settings
  • Use system design and management tools to evaluate your solutions
  • Prove the value of your solutions
  • Scale your new ideas and spread them across your institution

“If design thinking has always baffled you, this book is the key to unlock its potential. Discovery Design is what anyone who wants to improve health care needs in order to generate the best ideas and see them transform practice in patient care settings.”
