Description


Before getting an MRI, almost eighty percent of children need to be sedated to stay still enough for a good image. But in the year after the Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh installed Doug Dietz's new machines, they only needed to sedate two children. What did Dietz do differently?


Hacking Healthcare: Designing Human-Centered Technology for a Healthier Future shows that human-centered design of technology can improve healthcare as we know it. Diving into stories from Stanford's Byers Center for Biodesign, StartUp Health portfolio company AdhereTech, and more, you will learn how unfriendly design in healthcare affects patients and doctors alike - and how innovators are changing that. From a pill bottle that reminds patients to take their medications, to incorporating Google Glass to help doctors with patient visit documentation, effective technology design is changing healthcare for the better.


Wondering what the future role of technology in healthcare will be? Curious to understand why current technologies are so inefficient and how they can be improved? Hacking Healthcare shines light on how human-centered design can shape the future of technology in healthcare. This book will be especially interesting to those who are excited about healthcare innovation and developing technologies for real-world impact.
