Digital healthcare solutions form an innovative growth area that addresses one of the greater societal challenges of our time. The need for maintaining and improving the quality of life for people who are living with medical conditions is crucial. Here it is important to include research and studies on user experience design in relation to the different dimensions of healthcare products and solutions.
When exploring solution concepts, going through processes of iterative prototyping, developing patient support programs and evaluating technological solutions, it is critical to understand users and incorporate a user-centered approach. The introduction of connected devices, digital platforms and infrastructures like smartphones and -watches, hearing aids, personal voice assistants (in ear as well as smart speakers), and AI in healthcare make the focus on users even more important.
The ecosystems of connected devices introduce a lot of complexity to the user experience of a given healthcare technology, but it might also enhance the diagnostics and communication between healthcare professionals and users.
The IT-University has put together a 2-day professional course that will give you inspiration, and present user experience practices and methods to be used in the context of healthcare technology and smart devices.
The thematic deep-dives in the course will present you to inspirational cases, methods and theories to think with when designing user experiences for healthcare technologies. During the workshops in the course you will also have a chance to try out some of the methods and analysis tools, and reflect upon how you can integrate this in your work.
