Upcoming: Healthcare Resiliency

April 26, 2023
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
OCAD University

The global pandemic has profoundly impacted many aspects of Canada’s daily social life. In the healthcare sector, patient access to and delivery of medical services went distanced and virtual to meet stringent and mandatory health and safety requirements, while many design projects were stalled or had to shift.

Design in the health sector was accelerating rapidly as co-design and patient-centered work was embraced and digital delivery increasingly took hold. Now, Canadians are embracing digital healthcare like never before... but there have been losses and now there are new pressures. Accessing our personal medical information online and consuming targeted medical services digitally is becoming as quick and easy as any other consumer service. Getting the healthcare we need when we need it is the new priority. At the same time, an aging population, the overdose crisis, mental health crisis, and healthcare system constraints create challenging conditions for change.

Join us for DesignMeets’ upcoming in-person event, DesignMeets: Healthcare Resiliency, as we explore the impact of COVID-19 on our healthcare system and the process of adapting to these changes to guide its codesign and strengthen our resiliency.
