A design project conducted by Weatherhead students for Cleveland Clinic was named the Runner-up in the 2012 Core77 Design Awards. Core77 is a leading magazine and global gathering point for designers, students, and enthusiasts, and selects design projects from products to services and beyond for its prestigious annual awards. Kipum Lee, a PhD candidate in Weatherhead’s Information Systems Department, led the winning project with MBA colleagues in last year’s Design in Management: Concepts and Practices (MIDS 420) capstone course - he now co-teaches the class.

Lee and his group consulted with Cleveland Clinic’s Office of Patient Experience for the project, entitled “Designing for Doctor & Patient Interactions in the Leave-Taking Experience,” which won in the category of service design. Lee explains, “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.” The Core77 jury praised the team’s consideration of “an array of stakeholer perspectives” and called their solutions “practical, creative, and resource-light.”
