Transforming Healthcare with UX Design

As the healthcare environment evolves and patient care moves outside the hospital environment, both patients and carers must be able to use increasingly complex medical devices safely. Medical device manufacturers spend millions developing the latest medical technologies, but often neglect to incorporate user experience, human factors and overall usability early in the design process, leading to costly delays later. 

In light of this, we spoke exclusively to Moni Wolf, Principal Design Director, Microsoft Healthcare to discuss the importance of incorporating user experience and human factors in the software design process for medical devices ahead of her session at SDMD Berlin 2019.

Shaping the regulatory landscape for the next generation of devices

New digital elements in medical devices are shaping a modern approach to patient care. These novel elements provide benefits in the form of new market participants, who have in turn brought innovation and new manufacturing processes. Ahead of his participation in the Software Design for Medical Devices Global Forum, we spoke to Pat Baird, Regulatory Head of Global Software Standards, Philips about the impact that the latest software developments are having on regulating a new generation of medical devices.
