Scotland has a vibrant "Creative Industries" economy that is currently under-utilised in health and social care. Creative sector knowledge, skills and philosophy can completely revolutionise the way care is provided in the future.
Healthcare solutions of the future will continue to be produced in scientific laboratories and by doctors that develop new medications and procedures. However, a whole new economy lies in utilising the "Creative Industries" strengths such as: healthcare design, digital interactive medical technology, computing and gaming tools that can empower patients, care-givers and communities to self-manage and reduce the need for drugs, operations and hospital admission.
In Scotland, we believe that these goals can be achieved through a "design led" approach where patients, care-givers, healthcare workers and communities can be enabled to co-design the services, products and caring environments they value. We also believe that better clinical and financial outcomes can be achieved if a Value Based Healthcare (VBHC) model is introduced to the public sector and that collaboration rather than competition becomes our new strength as a nation.
Join us in Dundee, a hub for design and innovation, at the Dundee Science Centre to explore this topic in depth and see where healthcare innovation will take us next.
