Design thinking is a creative innovation process originally used by designers to enhance the look and functionality of products. More recently, this methodology has been used to tackle complex social and health care problems. Design thinking is a human-centered approach that, when applied to health care, involves creating solutions by listening closely to patients’ needs and problems. Another important aspect of the design thinking approach is the co-development of solutions, which means involving patients, doctors and other health professionals, in the process of generating new ideas.
