Together with Monash Health’s Patient Experience Office, Health Collab is investigating how design thinking can be used to foster cultural transformation and improve patients’ experience in hospital.

With this knowledge, Health Collab and Monash Health will then implement a Patient Experience improvement project across ten high-priority wards.
