Weatherhead School student project for Cleveland Clinic wins design award

A design project conducted by Weatherhead School of Management students for Cleveland Clinic was named the runner-up in the 2012 Core77 Design Awards. Core77 is a magazine and gathering point for designers, students and enthusiasts that selects design projects from products to services and beyond for its annual awards. Kipum Lee, a doctoral candidate in Weatherhead School’s Information Systems Department, led the winning project with MBA colleagues in last year’s Design in Management: Concepts and Practices capstone course; he now co-teaches the class.

Lee and his group consulted with Cleveland Clinic’s Office of Patient Experience for the project, titled “Designing for Doctor & Patient Interactions in the Leave-Taking Experience.” The project won in the category of service design.

“Out of the many dimensions and moments of patient experience, [our] project focused on the issue of doctor-to-patient interaction during the discharge phase,” Lee explained.
