2024 Johns Hopkins Healthcare Design Competition
2024 Johns Hopkins Healthcare Design Competition celebrates good design in healthcare. Winner show a solid understanding of the needs, the people impacted, focused problem-solving, and a great real-world solution.
The Design Brief is a two-page executive summary of your design project. The brief should be written for an audience of medtech engineers and designers who may not be as familiar as you are with your clinical and solution space.
Design Briefs will be evaluated by following four criteria. We recommend the design brief is laid out in sections devoted to each criteria.
Problem description (25%)
Define the problem you are addressing, the clinical/healthcare background, and why there is a need for a better solution.
Solution concept(s) (25%)
Present your proposed solution with your design rationale and explain how it meets the needs of the stakeholders involved in your clinical/healthcare problem.
Reduction to practice (25%)
Describe the proof-of-concept experimental results you have completed and/or renderings and photos of your prototype(s).
Pathway to implementation (25%)
Describe the pathway that lies ahead for your project towards creating an impactful solution.
The Design Brief must be no more than 2 pages in length including figures. References can be listed as a separate page.
Use an Arial, Helvetica, Palatino Linotype, or Georgia typeface, a black font color, and a font size of 11 points or larger. (A Symbol font may be used to insert Greek letters or special characters; the font size requirement still applies.)
Type density, including characters and spaces, must be no more than 15 characters per inch. Type may be no more than six lines per inch. Use standard paper size (8 ½” x 11). Use at least one-half inch margins (top, bottom, left, and right) for all pages. No information should appear in the margins.
Figures, plots, and/or photos are highly recommended but are counted towards the page limit.
References can be included in a separate page and are not part of the two-page requirement.
