What makes us get sick? Look upstream

What makes us get sick? Look upstream | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Rishi Manchanda has worked as a doctor in South Central Los Angeles for a decade, where he’s come to realize: His job isn’t just about treating a patient’s symptoms, but about getting to the root cause of what is making them ill—the “upstream" factors like a poor diet, a stressful job, a lack of fresh air. It’s a powerful call for doctors to pay attention to a patient's life outside the exam room.
Art Jones's insight:

Rishi Manchanda is an "upstreamist." A physician and public health innovator, he aims to reinvigorate primary care by teaching doctors to think about—and treat—the social and environmental conditions that often underlie sickness.

Combine design thinking and digital health to provide for the underserved | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it

“Don’t ever forget that you’re weird.”Not exactly what I expected to hear, years ago, on the first day of my first business school marketing class. This advice is a good reminder that designing for oneself, while straightforward and enticing, will not have widespread impact.When it comes to healthcare and wellness, the population of people needing support is quite diverse. Not everyone has adequate health insurance, access to specialists, disposable income for a gym membership, education about proper nutrition, a reliable personal support system or convenient internet access to receive messages from providers.


Via Alex Butler
Art Jones's insight:

Another way to describe design thinking is by calling it "Human Centered Design". When we begin product development with the audience we serve as central to our product, service or solution, that is when the deliverable is truly optimized to bring that audience exactly what they need.
