Human Centered Design for Future of Public’s Health

Historically, public health adopts the evidence-based, Best Practice approach of medicine—there is always a ‘gold standard’. While this expert-led approach ranks high in reliability, it falls short in the real world when standard protocols are applied in settings with limited resources and control. Contemporary practitioners in both health care and public health increasingly recognise the benefits of being more responsive to the needs of citizens, and the incorporation of a human centered design approach has tremendous potential in improving people’s health and healthcare experiences.

Finding the New Frontiers of Healthcare

21st century healthcare demands innovations from many fields: life sciences, healthcare delivery, food systems, behavioral health, big data, and community health. Deep specialists drive new advances, now we need to think like a designer to make elegant and integrated new health solutions. Larry Keeley has personally helped to shape the innovation strategies as some of the most respected healthcare systems in the world, like Mayo Clinic and Kaiser Permanente. He has worked with seven of the largest pharmaceutical firms and, scores of innovative start ups. With graduate design students, he has helped to build deep systems that fight complex conditions like diabetes and coronary disease. And he has helped several medical schools imagine how the teach our next generation of industry practicioners. For KODW, Keeley will help imagine the frontiers of healthcare for Hong Kong and China.

Cities and Health: Seeing the Bigger Design Picture

In the face of finite resources, and an aging population, we need to take a more holistic approach to urban health. New businesses and social opportunities will only arise, as Jeremy Myerson notes, when policymakers and planners start taking a boarder approach to campaigning for health in cities, rather than just healthcare.

14:00-17:30 Forum 2 – Designing Future Care

Healthcare practices are evolving with architectural principles, spatial design and experiential stakeholder engagement strategies. Hospitals and healthcare facilities are no longer mere destinations for medical care, but also platforms delivering holistic care, user experience, operational efficiency and community engagement. How can we better design spaces to foster health, stimulate empathy, accord dignity and  achieve effective communication among patients, medical service professionals, care workers, families and other users?

Bridging the Healthcare Experience Gap

As consumers develop more sophisticated tastes, they also expect the same of their healthcare environment – personalized and relevant. According to a study by Prophet, the gap between what healthcare systems believe they are delivering and what patients are actually experiencing has never been wider. Why is there such a great divide, and what can be done to bridge it? Scott Davis gives his two cents.

Big Data for Urban Health and Decision Making

Few decisions are made about urban development without referencing data. Yet, it is common for different agencies to find that they are using different or contradictory data sets for the same urban location. Professor Kvan will share insights on the implementation of the Australian urban research infrastructure network (AURIN), a national portal which aligns over 2,000 data sets on various dimensions of urban information, including transportation and education, and is accessible by researchers and policy makers.

Designing healthier cities - opportunity through change

At the CEO Forum, Jeremy Myerson, Helen Hamlyn Professor of Design at the Royal College of Art (RCA) and Director of the WORKTECH Academy, will examine the key design elements to create a healthier city. He will argue that new business and social opportunities arise when planners and policymakers take a broader approach to supporting health in cities, rather than just healthcare. As our population ages, taking a more holistic approach to urban health will bring commercial and cultural benefits to those cities bold enough to face the challenge.
