Small Changes Can Make a Big Difference

March 5, 2018
3:05pm - 3:30pm

Digital health has the capability to change healthcare in a variety of ways. From clinical care decisions to being able to remotely check on patients in rural settings with chronic conditions, but the challenge remains in how to get both clinicians and patients to interact with the digital device or dashboard.

Amy Schwartz, Human Centric Design Thought Leader at Battelle, will discuss the importance of design in healthcare and how small changes can make a big difference in the use, application and placement of digital and personal connected, so instead of an outlier in healthcare, digital devices become as commonplace as stethoscopes.

Key takeaways:

  • While function matters, design is important for patient and doctor buy in.
  • Small differences make a world of difference in digital health applications.
  • Healthcare needs to pay attention to patients to learn what works and what doesn’t.
