For ten years the success of Transform has been the result of the expertise, ideas, and energy of attendees from around the world. Please join us September 27-29th at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester, Minnesota.


TRANSFORM2017 is led by the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation, which fuses design principles with the scientific method to uncover human needs in the health care environment. This creative approach to problem solving includes empathy, creativity, systems thinking and a human-centered focus. Design methods include ethnographic and observational techniques, visualization, prototyping, sketching, storytelling, brainstorming and more. The complement of design allows the center to think beyond what health care normally is or does and serve as a translator for ideas and possibilities.
