Trends in Medical and Health Solutions

Our team is back from the IDSA (Industrial Designers Society of America) Medical Design Conference "The Usability Ecosystem," and Cleveland Clinic's Medical Innovation Summit. After an intensive dive into the latest thinking and trends in healthcare, we returned with fresh ideas about what is affecting change, what needs attention and how other leaders in the space are moving healthcare forward.

 

We would like to share some of our learnings with you in this report. If you'd like to connect with us on this topic or others, please email us.
