Event description

Description


The United States' current healthcare system is in crisis. We spend the most money on healthcare-related expenses of any country. 27 million American citizens either pay out of pocket or have to refuse care because they lack healthcare insurance coverage. There is a disconnect in communication and information sharing across the entire system complicating care for patients and causing physician burnout. And that's only the tip of the iceberg.

Join NEMIC Managing Partner and Designer, Aidan Petrie whose focus is on the intersections between user-centered design and healthcare as he explains the current state of our healthcare system, the costs, the challenges, and a designer's role in changing the system to benefit all.
