Breakout Title: Designing for Mayo Clinic and the Future of Health Care MEREDITH DeZUTTER
The Mayo Clinic is currently engaged in a multi-year initiative to redesign their outpatient practice to continue to be relevant and financially sustainable into the future. To execute this initiative, we have designed a process that builds on traditional design methodologies for framing, identifying and conceptualizing new ideas, ultimately creating a new approach that allows us to better understand the complexity inherent in large systems. With this process, we are attempting to define a new offering by simultaneously looking at the existing clinic as well as the disruptive landscape drivers that will impact Mayo in the future. This presentation will highlight our approach to redesigning the outpatient practice, cite some of our specific research and provide a glimpse of some initial plans we have for the outpatient practice of the future.
