Spirit Health have joined forces with non-profit “do-tank” Fuzzy Studio to host an open rapid innovation project delving into how improvements could be made to cancer care pathways, with a particular focus on lower GI cancer.
In line with our mission to make health easy and accessible for all, we’re aiming to bring together a few expert, passionate minds to generate new ideas on solving problems and improving patient outcomes in the lower GI cancer pathway, using human-centred design thinking.
The group will be getting together using digital tools such as Microsoft Teams to produce ideas around:
- How to address capacity issues
- What new/emerging tools and technologies could be used in the pathway
- How to tackle health inequalities for people with cancer
- How to tackle unmet needs of both patients and healthcare providers
As this is an open innovation project, we’re putting out a call for healthcare professionals knowledgeable in the lower GI cancer field to come and contribute. This would involve a few hours over March and early April giving your views on how the care pathway could be improved.
All contributors and, if appropriate, their organisations will be credited in a thought leadership whitepaper which will be widely distributed among healthcare publications, in order for the ideas to stoke further conversation in the wider health community.
If you’d like to come and help us imagine what could be possible for the lower GI cancer pathway – please register your interest with us by filling out our form and one of our team will be in touch with you.Register your interest
