Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation to sponsor a collaborative symposium on innovations in health care experience and delivery

ROCHESTER, Minn. -- The Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation will host Transform 2010-Thinking Differently about Health Care, its third collaborative symposium aimed at changing the way health care is experienced and delivered, on Sept. 12-14 in Rochester, Minn.

Transform 2010 will feature nationally-recognized speakers on topics focused on innovation and design thinking as well as innovations in health care delivery models around themes that include Health for All, Emerging Communities, Making Good Decisions, Designing Health; New World-New Technologies, and Designing Transformative Business for Health.

"Many of history's greatest innovations resulted from the union of disciplines, from conversations that spanned schools of thought. The innovations in health care that help to foster population-level wellness will be no exception," says David Rosenman, M.D., a Mayo Clinic physician who practices hospital internal medicine. Dr. Rosenman is the director of Mayo Clinic Innovation Curriculum and Transform, a collaborative symposium on innovations in health care experience and delivery.

Transform 2010 will feature more than 30 presenters with a wide variety of expertise in their fields, including Patch Adams, M.D., author and founder of the Gesundheit! Institute; Aneesh Chopra, chief technology officer, The President's Office of Science and Technology Policy; Jesse Dylan, founder of; Esther Dyson, entrepreneur, journalist and commentator on emerging digital technology, health and health care; Robert Fabricant, vice president of creative for Frog Design; and Sanne Magnan, M.D., Ph.D., Minnesota Commissioner of Health. A complete listing of presenters can be found at

Two new components have been added for Transform 2010: 1) a panel of experts in design and design-thinking will offer attendees insights into the real-world triumphs and complications of thinking creatively within health care settings, and 2) selected presentations will be simultaneously delivered in the 3D virtual world of Second Life on the Mayo Clinic campus (

Attendees from 24 states and seven countries participated in Transform 2009. This year's registration to date indicates a similar mix of participants from around the globe. Attendees at this symposium can connect with thoughtful colleagues from inside and outside the health care industry. Time for networking and collaboration is built into the symposium schedule to facilitate the discovery of new models of care that will transform the experience and delivery of health care in the 21st century. Additional information about the conference, including registration, can be found at

The symposium will be held at the Rochester Civic Center, Taylor Arena. An optional innovation tour of Mayo Clinic and a reception in the Gonda Building on the Mayo Clinic campus will precede the symposium on Sunday, Sept. 12. The symposium requires registration and is open to the public. Registration forms and fee information for Transform 2010 are available on the Center for Innovation website at

The public can follow symposium-related news and innovation at Mayo Clinic at Center for Innovation Blog at and symposium discussions on Twitter (#txfm10). Social media will facilitate collaboration among participants before, during and after this exciting and transformational health care event.
