Disruptive Health Innovations
24 November 2023, Friday | 04:00 PM - 06:00 PM (GMT+8)

Health is complex issue globally. Because of the complex interplay of many factors, we might say that health care is a wicked problem. In the Philippines, we can narrow down this complex concern into fragmentation of services and inequities of access. To address these concerns, there is a need to understand Health Security (epidemics and access to protection), Health Governance (shifting from performance to outcomes), and AAHuman Resources for Health (migration and maldistribution) The solutions of today will not be able to solve the problems of tomorrow. It will need disruptive solutions. Reframing the issue: do we have a future proof health service delivery and health workforce? Examples of Disruptive Health Innovations using Health Design thinking principles will be shared in class for discussion.
