Heleen Engelen

Global Head of Design Teams and Operations at Philips Design for HealthTech






Connecting People in a Connected World


Session Description:

Our Design journey for Philips HealthTech started in September 2015. We have come long way from where we began. Together, we have started an adventure towards shaping an engaging and dynamic design community in which people leverage their competences in the most optimal way in projects, horizontal programs, and communities of practice across 14 locations. We are connecting the dots beyond the design community to deliver integrated solutions to improve people's health and enable better outcomes across the health continuum.
