Applying human-centered design principles to real-world health care challenges, from drug packaging to early detection of breast cancer.
This book makes a case for applying design thinking principles to real-world health care challenges. As health care systems around the globe struggle to expand access, improve outcomes, and control costs, Health Design Thinking offers a human-centered approach for designing health care products and services, with examples and case studies that range from drug packaging and exam rooms to internet-connected devices for early detection of breast cancer. Written by leaders in the field--Bon Ku, a physician and founder of the innovative Health Design Lab at Sidney Kimmel Medical College, and Ellen Lupton, an award-winning graphic designer and curator at Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum--the book outlines the fundamentals of design thinking. It highlights essential products, prototypes, and research in health design.
