Patient-Centered Design Innovation Summit

Thought Leader FAQs

What is a summit?

A summit is a meeting of leaders in a specific area of focus, representing all perspectives that have a stake in the arena. This “mountaintop” experience allows them to discuss the current state of their work and develop vision-oriented solutions, changes and breakthroughs to bring about improvements.

What is the Patient-Centered Design Innovation Summit?

The Patient-Centered Design Innovation Summit is the ideal opportunity for the leaders in health facility design to come together and brainstorm on new solutions for health facility accommodations.

This is a multidisciplinary approach to patient-centered design. With delegates representing hospitals across the country posing challenges to design professionals, the users (patients, families and clinicians) will also be in attendance to share their needs and collaborate on patient-centered design solutions.

What is thought leader?

The thought leader role is to promote lively discussions and the development of real solutions for the challenges that the teams will tackle. Thought leaders will be assigned to each team to help lead the conversations. There is no advance preparation necessary. These roles are unscripted, and will provide diverse perspectives to engage each team in active brainstorming.

Why teams?

Each thought leader has been assigned to a team to ensure that there is diversity in areas of expertise in each topic area (ED, OR, ICU, L&D and Ambulatory Care, with special attention to pediatric oncology) as well as diversity in thought leader categories (Health Facility Delegates, Patient Delegates, Design Collaborators, Clinical Collaborators, Academic Ambassadors).
