The Innovation Center brings a new dimension to MD Anderson's long-standing history of transformative innovation by expanding into the world of digital health technology—designing and co- creating new products, services and experiences—all while fostering a culture of innovative thinking.
With a mission to uncover and develop technology opportunities that eliminate cancer worldwide, we are combining human- centered design principals with real-world health care needs. We are driven to think big and transform the cancer care experience inside our walls and beyond.
The Innovation Center aims to create transformational change by identifying innovative ideas and unique solutions to problems. Our team works alongside MD Anderson clinicians, researchers, patients and operational leaders using observation techniques, stakeholder interviews and market research to understand how to develop the next generation of digital technology solutions and to design groundbreaking user experiences.
A few things we believe.
We believe collaboration fuels innovation.
By bringing multiple viewpoints to a discussion, we allow cross-pollination of ideas—fueling bigger and better innovations quickly.
We believe observation leads to insights.
By engaging with patients and staff, asking for their input and walking in their shoes, we uncover trends and threads that data alone cannot reveal. Understanding the context of a problem leads to solutions that ultimately deliver on experiences that are designed for people first.
We believe accelerating innovation is more critical than ever.
Amazing advances in cancer care are made here every day. When we fuel innovations that can creatively address patient and staff needs as the business of health care continues to get more competitive, we all win.
