The DHW lab is not alone in its aspirations to embed good design in the experience of the hospital. We have friends with a similar vision at the HELIX centre, London.
HELIX is short for Healthcare Innovation Exchange. It’s an exploration into how design can transform health when it’s placed on the front line of the medical world – an acute general hospital in Europe’s busiest city.
Earlier this year, DHW lab co-director Stephen Reay visited the Helix centre and shared our learning around how design can improve healthcare experiences. Although we are at opposite ends of the planet, we are looking forward to growing together and sharing knowledge!
Be sure to check out their venture, especially their upcoming open day at the London Design Festival 2015.
