Co-creating Solutions in Health Technology


Philips has the ambition to improve 3 billion lives each year by 2025. To achieve this ambition, they are connecting and collaborating with more people than ever before, creating solutions together with start-ups, with universities, with other large companies, and mostly importantly with hospitals and patients. As the world becomes more complex and dynamic, Philips' ability to create meaningful innovations relies more and more on their ability to create solutions with the right mix of people. For example, if they are creating a solution in the hospital, Philips involves the healthcare professionals – nurses, doctors, technicians, administrators and of course the patients– alongside a range of experts from across Philips. In this keynote, Sean will give insight into how Philips co-creates solutions in health technology and the role that Design Thinking plays in driving meaningful innovation.
