Message from the CEO: The experience counts
All clinicians and healthcare professionals share something in common with their patients - navigating the health system can be a tough slog. High on the list for HISA’s newest Community of Practice, the UX Network, is raising awareness about this wicked problem – improving the clinician and patient user experience across healthcare settings with all the challenges that presents. When clinicians get involved in co-designing systems, we are on the right path for a great healthcare experience. Led by UX guru Chris Bain and joined by Matiu Bush, Dr Louise Teo, Bernard Schokman, Dr Anne Miller and Pamela Scicluna, the UX Network is certain to bring a new perspective to digital health implementation. » READ MORE
