Listen in while designers slash healthcare entrepreneurs,
Tina Park and Miya Osaki, share their revelries and
wrongdoings of running a business.
Things are about to get weird.
In Season 2–Episode 12, Katie McCurdy, healthcare designer extraordinaire (and good friend) joined us for an insightful conversation about bringing more designers into healthcare. On the flip side, more and more healthcare providers see the value of design, too. Doctoring, however, is not designing- so what exactly is the role of design from the provider’s point of view?
Tina and Miya reached out to Dr. Lalita Abhyankar, Family Physician and friend of the podcast, to share opinions on the benefits of bringing design into the clinic. (Yah, no…The EMR is BROKEN.)
Grab your stethoscope and your Post-its and listen in as Dr. Lalita talks about the creative side of medicine and the challenges doctors may face when healthcare doesn’t embrace a designerly mindset.
In healthcare, how can you truly understand how people will use a product or service when humans are unpredictable, health is difficult to manage, and you don’t know always what the end product or service should be?
In order to understand human behavior, and all the idiosyncrasies that go along with it (peanut butter and mayo sandwiches, anyone?), you need to find inventive ways to conduct research. Tune in for Episode 27 to learn about the unconventional methods that M + T have developed over the years – such as interactive interviews and experiential prototyping – to uncover more meaningful insights about humans and their health.
We’re halfway through Season 3! Join us for the “check in” episode where Miya and Tina cover three topics they’re interested in right now: inclusivity in clinical trials, women in leadership, and a revisit of the privacy conversation from Episode 23– this time with a small glimmer of hope.
What are you waiting for?! Tap that play button, and tune in for a rousing game of Yah vs. No, a subtle tweak to the show intro, and some important shout outs to leaders who are working hard to make positive change.
