Healthcare Inc. 2018
Collaborating through a Human Centered Approach to Innovation

Healthcare Inc. Exhibition 2018 is an exhibition of the work created in a master’s level course work called Healthcare Inc. The module is run by HDK’s Business & Design and the Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and is a program where students are teamed up to work across disciplinary lines with real life clients and practical problems through the GU Ventures’ Impact Accelerator. The students in this course come into the project with backgrounds in law, engineering, bioscience, healthcare sciences, business and design.

This year Healthcare Inc. consisted of 9 projects where the students codesigned the problem understanding, lead a problem reframing and even dove in and worked to solve these problems with professionals in the VGR community. The clients come from many parts of the hospital / healthcare system including:
Rheumatology, Health & Habilitation, Play Therapy, Styrsö Health Center, Children and Youth Development at Angered Health Center, Health Center for Sexual Health, Surgery Department of Breast and Melanoma Surgery.

Where: Enter in main entrance of the hospital and walk down corridor past the elevators and make a right at end of the hallway. The Ljusgården is located in the area a few meters down and to the left.
