What Exactly is a Continuity Do Tank?

What exactly is a Do Tank?

A Do Tank is an action-oriented and engaging design thinking process, tied to a challenge for greater impact.


So what is a Continuity Do Tank?

Picture this…disaster strikes! Do you and your team know your next steps to keep your hospitals, clinics, organizations and companies continuing to provide healthcare? The Continuity Do Tank is an interactive and engaging design thinking process that enables on-your-feet problem solving and rapid response in the field, supporting lives and empowering innovative strategies for health care preparedness.



What will you gain from the session?

AHEPP and the Field Innovation Team (FIT) will walk you through an interactive, three-step process for designing continuity solutions demonstrated with a simulated disaster—beginning with a narrative of who and what you are solving for, then sculpting a focused challenge statement through a reframing exercise, and concluding by building out a concept to prototype in small, networked teams. Along the way, the team will cover emergency management and case studies from past emergencies that demonstrate the design process as a proven method to solve challenges in the healthcare crisis.


What will you learn?

The session is designed to achieve the following learning outcomes:

  • Leveraging resources by learning to do more with less.
  • Support teams, staff and leadership in expediting response and recovery.
  • Simple steps on how to lead in disasters.
  • Innovating in real-time with a three step design thinking process.


Who should attend?

Administrators, Emergency Preparedness Coordinators, Emergency Managers, Clinical Staff, and all staff interested in healthcare preparedness.


When is the session offered?

The Continuity Do Tank is part of the pre-conference sessions offered from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm on November 7.
