Design Thinking and Innovation Academy In collaboration with DesignSingapore Council
Healthcare challenges are complex, systemic and involve people – a perfect match for Design Thinking, a needs-based creative method for designing breakthrough solutions. In collaboration with the DesignSingapore Council, we have developed the healthcare curriculum of the Design Thinking and Innovation Academy. Teams from across the sector have successfully learnt how to use Design Thinking to address their own healthcare challenges: Raffles Medical Group and Tan Tock Seng Hospital and Excelpoint are amongst the alumni.
