HELIX Summer Institute 2019

The HELIX Summer Institute focused on developing solutions to a real life problem being faced by Markham Stouffville Hospital (MSH) and St Elizabeth Health Care.  Working with our partners, participants followed a 10-day intensive Design Jam, which exposed them to interactive workshops, keynote speeches and mentorship.  Participants used the tools provided in the HELIX Summer Institute to improve the patient experience in community healthcare.  Participants will explore how technology and new approaches to patient experience can be leveraged to improve experiences at MSH and St Elizabeth Health Care.
