2019 Medical Design Forum: Embracing + Innovating Change

This year’s Medical Design Forum includes two days of interdisciplinary presentations, design case studies, and conversations around embracing and innovating change. What are today’s key drivers of change in healthcare and healthcare environments, and how do we approach these changes? How do we measure the social and economic value of innovation, manage risk, and keep humans at the center of design? On February 7 and 8, we welcome AEC and healthcare professionals to join us at this dynamic program that concludes with a virtual tour of St. Charles Bend’s new patient tower under construction.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS: “Non-expert Innovation: Driving Transformational Change” by Beth Kolko, PhD, Co-founder and CEO, Shift Labs | Beth is a researcher, educator, and entrepreneur who blends disciplinary perspectives to identify hidden problems and craft innovative solutions. She began her career as a professor in the humanities, studying how diverse communities used a then text-based internet to organize and enact change. Her current work focuses on the potential of non-experts to create disruptive solutions, and she builds programs that help people become functional engineers so they can solve problems in their communities. Beth is co-director of the Tactical and Tactile Technology Lab. She also created the Hackademia Project which builds innovation potential among broad audiences by imparting functional engineering skills combined with design thinking. Kolko is the co-founder and CEO of Shift Labs, a for-profit company building low-cost medical devices for emerging markets leveraging global innovation networks. She has been the Director of Innovation at the Makerbot Foundation (2013), a Fulbright professor at the University of World Economy and Diplomacy in Tashkent, Uzbekistan (2000), a Visiting Faculty Researcher at Microsoft Research (2007), and a Fellow (2007-2009) and Faculty Associate (2009-present) at the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University.
