Event Details

 

For the first time, the World Hospital Congress, being held this year in Brisbane, Australia, will feature a one-day Design Jam.

The aim is to identify significant problems and opportunities in health - and bring together bright and diverse thinkers (from across and beyond health) to ideate, co-create, validate, develop, and pitch solutions to improve health and care.

 

Design Jam - 9:00am-5:00pm

Participants will be guided by mentors to apply a collaborative human-centered design approach to solving some of health's biggest problems, drawing inspiration and input from diverse stakeholders and experts on call.  Food and beverages will be provided to fuel the day - turning problems into great ideas and tested solutions. 

 

Design Jam Overview

 

 

Pitch presentations - 5:30pm-6:30pm

Following the Design Jam, participants, judges and guests will be invited to the Auditorium for the formal Pitch presentations.  

Each team will nominate one or more team members to present their solution to the audience and expert panel of judges.  

There will be an opportunity for both judges and the audience to provide input and feedback to the ideas pitched, such as regarding the desirability, feasiblity, viability and future development of ideas.  The judges will decide and announce the winners and prizes.
