Event Description

Health is one of the most demanded needs in our lives. Yet there is little effort of improving service design and UX in the healthcare industry, good example is canadianpharmacyratings.net. Digital Health is growing because more technologies are developing each day. Telehealth, ehealth, and mhealth are some well-known terms these days.
Human-Centred Design advocates involving humans in the design process. Unfortunately, when it comes to healthcare systems the technologies are ad-hoc. There is a lack of focus on patients' user experiences.

How do we practice human-centred design in digital health?
What are the differences between regular users and patients?
What are the challenges working in Digital Health?

This talk presents a series of work on Sakib Jalil’s PhD, postdoc, and industry experience. A series of cases will be presented that will inform you about:

•Applying UX and service design in the healthcare systems
•Highly regulated clinical trials
•Ethnography, codesign, lead user approach, and contextual design
•Type 2 diabetes, cancer, Kawasaki disease, and mental health
behaviour change through mobile apps
