#HIMSS18 #DesignDispatch: Global Stories of Local Design Experiences

By Adam Bazer, senior manager, health information systems, HIMSS North America

Design is a global language that we all speak in different dialects. Forms and functions may be shaped by local needs, but people everywhere can sense when a product or service they are utilizing is designed well or designed poorly.

While latitudes and longitudes might be different, you can almost hear the collective choruses of “aha” and “oy” from around the world as people interact with good design and bad design in their offices and homes, their hospitals and doctors’ offices.

In their session, User-Centered Design of a Mobile ePrescription Service, Claudio Saccavini, chief information officer, and Enrico Dal Pozzo, anthropologist, ehealth service designer at Arsenàl.IT Consortium, describe the development steps of a mobile service that allow citizens of the Veneto region in Italy to manage their drug prescriptions, dispensing and remote renewal requests. The process also led to an early definition of a methodological and organizational framework for user-centered design of healthcare mobile solutions in the Veneto region.
