Currently, very little in healthcare is deliberately designed. The bar for design standards is low compared to other industries, and this is because we have not yet made the space for design experts in healthcare. We need people who understand clinical practice and patient needs as well as those can design for the human experience and create an engaging end product. But how do the two professional worlds of designers and clinical experts mesh? Where do we begin to work together? This session will outline how to lay down the infrastructure for designer and clinician collaboration by sharing case studies, challenges, opportunities, and tips and tricks, particularly from the lens of the largest human factors design team in the world devoted to health.
Presented at HxD 2013 in Boston.
