    #26 Design-Inspired Healthcare with Ty Hagler, design thinking, complexity, blockchain, Gitcoin and kayaking

    #26 Design-Inspired Healthcare with Ty Hagler, design thinking, complexity, blockchain, Gitcoin and kayaking

    Ty for many years had a passion for art, design and engineering hence leading to the formation of Trig in 2008, having started his career as an Industrial Designer at Home Depot he decided to return to school to complete an MBA in Innovation Management and Marketing at North Carolina State University, where he got exposed to medical devices and realised that the issues faced during home development were similar to those within devices especially during the human ergonomics phase hence why he decided to serve the industry through his own company Trig.

    On this episode he covers the development of blockchain plus its integration into healthcare, his career development to date and the need to develop yourself as an entrepreneur, the distribution of pharmaceutical and MedTech companies in the RTP area of North Carolina, his athletic past as a world-class kayaker and how he applied the skills and lessons he learnt during his athletic career to his work and his advice for students together with various different programs available for career development across higher education institutes within the USA.

    He has a unique take on how early stage medical innovators can get funding. His company has developed a workshop that engages clinicians to identify problem areas in healthcare and build well-articulated need statements. He asserts that the structured processes for medical device development are not the same as the skills and techniques needed to generate a novel device idea at the beginning. Teams of clinicians and researchers are led through a 7-week hands-on curriculum where they work on their highest priority unmet needs in healthcare and learn how to prototype low-risk experiments. The second cohort of 4 teams presented their work on June 8th, 2022. To learn more about the Design-Inspired Team workshops, check out: https://www.designinspired.team/

    To follow along on the results of the current cohort, please consider supporting their work through the novel grant funding mechanism, GitCoin: https://gitcoin.co/grants/5321/healthcare-innovation-is-broken-were-fixing-it
