HxD 2013: Where Healthcare & Design Intersect
Monday, March 25 2013
At the Healthcare Experience Design Conference you’ll join designers, technologists, product managers, researchers, entrepreneurs, visionaries, and dreamers representing a broad spectrum of companies and organizations in the healthcare space. Through this inspired mix of presenters and attendees, HxD will explore the overlap of healthcare and design. Speakers will discuss how human centered design and design thinking can improve the quality of health service delivery and digital interactions, helping all of us achieve better health.
The theme of HxD 2013 is well-being as the foundation for health. We’ll explore the power of positive psychology, behavior change, public health and health literacy, care experiences, managing chronic conditions, design innovation, research and design methods, and case studies. The voice of the patient will be loud and clear - designers who have battled disease will share how it’s changed the way they approach their work. Keynotes include Jane McGonical, CEO of SuperBetter, Gretchen Rubin, Author of “The Happiness Project”, Dr. David Sobel of Kaiser Permanente, and Jamie Heywood, CEO of Patients Like Me.
