The event brought together 9 teams (over 40 team members) to generate innovative ideas focusing on two healthcare challenges: Remote Rehabilitation and Home Care of Cancer Patients.

Over the two intense days, teams were guided through a service design methodology to help structure their thinking and unleashing their creativity. Teams also had support from business coaches challenging them and providing guidance on how to better design their solution and make it more ‘business ready’.

At the end of the two days, a Jury voted the best 4 ideas; 3 of these are now in discussion with the challenge owners to bring their idea to fruition and one team applied to the INNOLABS 1st Open Call to try and get support to make this happen.
