Design Museum Mornings with Juhan Sonin, Director at GoInvo 

The algorithms that drive our care, to our clinical and life data, to hospital and treatment pricing, are governed by blackbox services. By using these closed systems, we are actively designed out of the decision-making process, in favor of corporate “optimized care” for optimized returns vs optimized health outcomes. Juhan Sonin focuses on why we should demand open source healthcare which would unlock the current closed system of medical records. He will examine the crooked biases built into software and policy, implemented with intent or accidentally, and draw a path towards Open Source Healthcare that allows citizen collaboration, design, and correction.

Join us in August for Design Museum Mornings at Optum for an enlightening conversation about Open Source Healthcare!

Doors Open • 8:30 – 9:00am

Program & Q&A • 9:00 – 10:00am


The Speaker

Juhan Sonin specializes in healthcare design and system engineering. He is the director of GoInvo (goinvo.com). The studio’s designs help 700,000 Massachusetts residents receive food stamps, are used by Wikipedia to explain complex health concepts, and manage care plans for 150 million US residents.

Juhan’s laser focus on healthcare and open source design has infected national efforts for multiple health service organizations. His open source healthcare products have also been leveraged by Walgreens, Crossover Health, and Hallmark Clinics, to name a few. Next, up in 2019, he is designing an open source primary care health picture, patient data use agreement service, and an open source oncology decision support service. He currently lectures on design and engineering at MIT.
