Thanks, Design Management Institute (@DMIfeed) for awarding KPLantern a Design Value Award for 2016.

– Kaiser Permanente is the nation’s highest performing health system
– We know there are problems that can’t be solved with medical care alone
– Lantern was the opportunity for someone like me, a family medicine physician, to work with Chris McCarthy (@McCarthyChris) and our amazing design consultancy (@KPInnovation) (led on this project by Dana Ragazeous) to change the face of health, within one of the most important civil rights issues of our time

For those not oriented to the design world, the Design Management Institute is a premier organization of design leaders all over the world, across disciplines.

Innovation does happen in out of the way places. Equality Equals Health. Love Always Wins. I’m proud of our transgender members, my colleagues who are transgender, our therapists, nurses, doctors and designers who are helping the world learn to love better 🙂 .
