Our Work > HEALTH

How might we create the conditions for every human to be healthy?

why health matters

Health cradles our quality of life and intersects myriad issues, from equity, to prosperity, to climate change.

Yet those who pursue health face obstacles. There are systemic barriers to quality care and prevention, diseases without cures, and failures to consider the emotional experience. Open innovation shines light on and nurtures latent potential in science, innovation, and intervention, moving ideas towards both proven efficacy and the business models to scale for a healthier future.


Improved health requires collaboration from across sectors. OpenIDEO is proud to have partnered with nonprofits, governments, biopharmaceutical leaders, insurers, health systems, educational institutions, media, and more.
