Health Care Providers Can Use Design Thinking to Improve Patient Experiences

Health Care Providers Can Use Design Thinking to Improve Patient Experiences | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Solving problems starts with understanding people’s needs.
Art Jones's insight:

Human Centered Design

 

Excerpt:

Design thinking has already taken hold in healthcare, leading to the development of new products and the improved design of spaces. Yet it remains underused in addressing other important challenges, such as patient transportation, communication issues between clinicians and patients, and differential treatment of patients due to implicit bias, to name just a few. If more leaders embrace design thinking, they can leverage a deeper understanding of patients to solve such problems, achieving better clinical outcomes, improved patient experience, and lower costs along the way.

What Healthcare Needs is a Genius Bar Approach

What Healthcare Needs is a Genius Bar Approach | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
By Mark Nolan, Senior Vice President / Executive Creative Director at Digitas Health
If anyone has set the bar for the customer experience of th
Art Jones's insight:

The motivation leading many to explore ways to streamline the manner in which patients engage with the healthcare delivery systems.

 

The motivation to institute process improvements are driven by the reality that most doctor visits are stressful experiences. We go to the doctor's office to hopefully find out the thing that ails us is not serious. However the stress we bring to the doctor's visit is very real then the process of seeing the doctor adds it's own heavy layer of stress too.

 

Visiting the doctor's office seems to mimic a military operation where the theme for most days is to hurry up and wait for you next set of orders.  Visiting the doctor's office is time consuming and stressful and those feelings are often responsible for inhibiting patients from being prepared and open to sharing accurate perspective on our particular health concerns.

The problem of doctors’ salaries

The problem of doctors’ salaries | The Future of Wellness & Healthcare | Scoop.it
Why doctors get paid too much and what we should do about it.
Art Jones's insight:

The technological disruption of healthcare is unsettling to everyone, patients and practitioners. Wrestling the cost of healthcare to the ground is hard and we are working on finding the optimal way to bring our healthcare cost into line with other first world countries. 

 

There is one line item on the national healthcare balance sheet no one seems to talk about, and that is the salaries we pay Physicians in the USA. Why?

 

Excerpt:

An unavoidable part of the high cost of U.S. health care is how much we pay doctors — twice as much on average as physicians in other wealthy countries. Because our doctors are paid, on average, more than $250,000 a year (even after malpractice insurance and other expenses), and more than 900,000 doctors in the country, that means we pay an extra $100 billion a year in doctor salaries. That works out to more than $700 per U.S. household per year. We can think of this as a kind of doctors’ tax.
