Design is Medicine
September 16, 2013
Healthcare is deadly. As patients and clinicians, we have long passed the threshold of comprehension when it comes to the amount of data and variables that support life-critical decisions. The system needs to be redesigned and re-imagined. True change comes from establishing a vision for healthcare that will modernize how doctors and patients interact with their health data to quantified and measurable medicine.
In this episode of The Digital Life, we discuss the idea that “Design is Medicine,” with Involution Studios Creative Director, Juhan Sonin. In his health design practice, Sonin explores how linear-thinking human beings can interpret non-linear, unbalanced health metrics, and how healthcare can be saved through coordination, presentation and design.
Join us as we look at the design, data, and policy challenges, as well as the scary new ideas being invented to solve them, that makes tackling the healthcare problem daunting and exciting.
