What is UX?
We often get stuck thinking about the complexity of change in big IT systems and in big organisations. User experience and human-centred design help us think about health consumers and design directly for them.
Great UX gives meaning to a service. It shows that the service knows you, sees you, hears you. This is true for consumers and healthcare professionals. To truly know the end-user, you need to use different design methods not just business intelligence (BI) and demographic and activity data.
The process around UX, which is to include users in decision-making, makes different kinds of impact. It helps organisations be better at what they do, and minimises the risk of doing the wrong thing.
