Rose Anderson  |  Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation

Rose Anderson is a service designer at the Mayo Clinic Center for Innovation where she uses human-centered design and systems thinking to transform the delivery and experience of health care. Since 2010, her focus has been on the design, development and diffusion of "Triple Aim" approaches to primary care with clinic and community partners. Her projects have included optimized care teams, patient-centered care planning and community-led wellness. She has served as a design strategy consultant for the Mayo Clinic Office of Population Health.

Anderson’s interest in patient experience and the use of comics in medicine also has led her to work in the area of illustrated assent, consent and HIPAA forms. This work was presented at the 2013 Advancing Ethical Research Conference and early concepts appeared in the 2010 issue of Atrium, a report by the Northwestern University Medical Humanities and Bioethics Program.

Prior to joining Mayo Clinic, Anderson was a design manager at Farm Product Development where she led research and design activities for start-up and established medical device clients. Her career began at Herbst LaZar Bell in Boston where she was part of a team product that earned IDEA Gold in 2008. She is listed as an inventor on several medical device patents and has contributed to award-winning products and successful acquisitions.

Anderson received her bachelor's degree in industrial design from the University of Cincinnati in 2004.
