Description

The business of healthcare, especially in the current era of accountable care, is all about finding the right balance between giving patients the best possible quality outcomes and doing it in a cost effective manner. Increasingly payers, employers, and consumers are looking  for the best healthcare products and services that deliver the best quality and outcomes.  This emphasis on value-driven medicine is producing the opportunity for new technology solutions that strike the balance between care and costs.  Designing these value-based solutions requires a new form of design thinking.

Designing sustainable and cost-effective solutions for “Connected Care” requires an interdisciplinary approach that brings together the disparate fields of healthcare economics, patient engagement, and digital technology. Innovators must be able to understand and shape their products and services at the intersection of medicine and finance. In this workshop the authors will discuss how they conceived and brought to market a Guided Care system, including how they used user-centered design and the economics of care to construct a solution that engaged patients and their families through surgical episodes. The designers will share their insights and methods (as well as successes and failures) over three years in the area of orthopedics.

Authors will lead a roundtable discussion with workshop participants to discuss the most pressing problems in healthcare economics and patient centered care. The authors will also showcase a variety of innovative tools in the current marketplace.

James believes technology, when creatively applied, can improve our life experiences. Intrigued by the amazing potential for internet and mobile technology to engage us all, James created a business model to reshape personal health management. He is the co-inventor of the Patient Guidance System and leads Wellbe’s innovations program to empower people and providers with new tools to improve health. James has launched several new businesses over his career including the Mediasite lecture recorder, the leading video learning appliance in companies and universities around the world.
