World Innovation Summit for Health

A Healthier World Through Global Collaboration

Catalogue Item


Organization: HELIX

Country: UK

Forum: Innovation Showcases

HELIX is short for Healthcare Innovation Exchange. It’s an exploration into how design can transform health when placed on the front line of the medical world – an acute general hospital in Europe’s busiest city. A team of designers, based at St Mary’s Hospital, London, work in clinical settings and a specially designed engagement space. Co-designing with clinicians, patients and the public, HELIX can respond quickly to complex healthcare issues, turning ideas into commercializable products and services.

HELIX is co-founded by Imperial College London and the Royal College of Art. Our philosophy is simple: real medical breakthroughs occur when people-centered design and scientific rigor collide.

At WISH the team is presenting a selection of recent projects, including innovations in management of chronic disease, health screening, patient experience and promotion of healthy living.
