In partnership with Blue Shield of California Foundation, we are excited to launch the ninth cycle of our award-winning design thinking program has already trained 295 people across 82 organizations. Design thinking is an approach to problem solving that is rooted in understanding people’s needs and experiences and requires that we get comfortable in deepening understanding of the problem before jumping into solutions. In our program, we emphasize the practice of “co-design,” where those most affected by the problem – whether they are clients, caregivers, or community members – play a pivotal role in creating the solution.
We currently are looking to expand our California network of community health centers, public hospitals, and clinic consortia. Entrepreneurs also play a key partnership role with the Hub, and we’re always looking to learn about new, compelling technology companies offering solutions that make care better for underserved communities.
