Providing for Providers: Future of Healthcare UX Meet Up

Friday 03:30 PM – Friday 04:30 PM Fairmont Verbena SXSW

There has been much bleak speculation around the impact of new technologies on jobs in healthcare, but can clinician-centric UX change the game? We’ll review the near and longer term impacts of technology advancement, dramatic increases in provider demand, and explosion of care models that will effectively allow physicians to choose when and how they practice. Join others who are affecting this vision of the future, as we discuss the implications of improvements in healthcare technology and service design on caregiving and the clinician lifestyle.
