Stacey Chang    

Executive Director of the Design Institute for Health; Professor, Department of Medical Education at University of Texas Austin

Stacey Chang is the Founding and Executive Director of the Design Institute for Health at the University at Texas at Austin. The Institute, a first-of-its kind, was established in 2015 and is dedicated to developing and applying creative design approaches to complex large-scale health system challenges.

The Institute focuses on creating human-centered solutions in clinical and community environments – with the intent to improve people’s health outcomes and care experiences, while building more robust models for addressing the modern nature of disease. Embedded as an integrated part of an operating health system and a medical education and training program, the Institute considers topics as broad as the design of health products and services, the built environment, integration of social and medical interventions, the structure of global health campaigns, and new concepts and approaches to societal health.

Previously, Stacey served as the Managing Director of the Healthcare practice at IDEO, the global design and innovation firm. Clients included governments, research institutions, hospitals, pharma, insurance, medtech, and all the upstarts trying to rewrite the script, in both established and emerging markets. He is currently a Thought Leader for NEJM Catalyst, and has served on the Editorial Advisory Board and as a stage host for TEDMED.
