HxRefactored announced the first annual Design for Health Award! This award showcased the product that provides an amazing user experience for a patient, provider, researcher, or other stakeholder. The winners were PokitDok and UrgentConsult.
In an industry focused on fixing issues of its own creation, Amy addressed the question, “how can we ensure a focus on the individual and address their unmet needs?”
Amy Cueva is always happy to step up and spread the word about the importance of human-centered design, Amy and her design agency Mad*Pow have partnered with Health 2.0 to host HxRefactored.
The heads of Health 2.0 and Mad*Pow will introduce you to the future of health care design and development.
Dustin DiTommaso of Mad*Pow introduced HotSeat, a wellness game that focuses on getting you to move at specific points of the day. The short activities are self selected and tailored into a personal schedule to get multiple two minutes workouts into your daily routine.
The new health care environment is continually moving into the hands of the individual consumer. The New Environment for Better Health Care Decisions, co-moderated by Indu Subaiya and Matthew Holt, addressed the issues and benefits of the integration of consumer data with clinical experiences. Ryan Beckland from Validic introduced the session as a sponsor. Speakers included Susannah Fox, Tim Kelsey, Neal Sofian, Jamie Heywood, Amy Cueva, David Whitlinger, and Lygeia Ricciardi. Demos exemplifying this shift included Dossia, Fitbit, Mana Health, and HealthifyMe.
