“While the politicians, insurance companies, and health care providers debate the social and economic problems of health care, ripe opportunities for improvement are going unnoticed. What’s lacking in this process is a strong shot of creativity and a dose of good design.
With this in mind I caught up with Dave Cronin, Smart Design’s new Director of Interaction Design to discuss the possibilities. Dave’s extensive background in designing medical products and services has helped Smart fortify our health care design practice.
Our discussion ranged from ways to improve health care, from the individual viewpoint to home and clinical settings to the health care ecosystem. With subject matter too lengthy for a single post, over the coming weeks we’ll offer several perspectives in a series of articles focused on improving health care through design.”
