Design Institute for Health SXSW Open House

  • Design Institute for Health 1701 Trinity Street Austin, TX, 78705 United States (map)

Join the Design Institute for Health in our new studio for our SXSW Open House featuring exhibits, demos, local flavors, case studies of our latest work and of course, the people of the Design Institute.

The Design Institute for Health is a first-of-its-kind institute born from the radical collaboration between Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin. It was established because health is one of the last frontiers to embrace design as a creative, human-centered approach to defining and solving problems.

Through design, we provoke every aspect of health systems to work better for people. Our embedded team of health design specialists uses creative problem-solving methods to deeply understand the needs of patients and providers, generate fresh systemic approaches and rapidly prototype and realize solutions.

We hope to see you there!
