What is the Health Design Workshop about?

Within the Health Design Workshop, participants learn how to identify and transform a (medical) need or problem of the healthcare industry into a viable business case. This is accomplished by applying an adapted version of the internationally known and accepted Biodesign innovation process from the Stanford University.
