Embassy of Health
As healthcare becomes increasingly complex, a more comprehensive approach based on new forms of collaboration is more vital than ever. In the Embassy of Health, Waag, Philips Design, Máxima Medisch Centrum, U Create, DDF and the Creative Industries Fund NL address the question: What will happen if the hospital of today no longer exists? Where will healthcare be provided, and how? What impact will this have on the healthcare landscape? What role will we play in healthcare? What will the relationship between healthcare professionals, patients, citizens and others look like? And what is the role of designers in shaping the future of healthcare? We live longer and longer, and the way we want to do that requires more and different care. With the exhibition Chronic Health: It's only human? at Dutch Design Week 2019, the Embassy of Health shows the power of design in transitions in healthcare.
