Healthcare Inc. Exhibition 2017 is an exhibition of the work created in a master’s level course called Healthcare Inc. The course 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 wicked problems through the GU Ventures Accelerator. The students in this course come into the project with backgrounds in law, engineering, bioscience, healthcare sciences, business and design.
This year the Accelerator consisted of 9 projects where the students codesigned the problem understanding, lead a problem reframing and even dived-in and worked to solve these problems with professionals in the VGR community. The clients come from many parts of the hospital system including: Cardiology, Palliative Care, Vascular Surgery, Eye Surgery, Pediatrics, Ambulance Care and Psychiatry.
