Journal Of Health Design

Last week I had the privilege of speaking to Dr. Moyez Jiwa. He is the current Editor in Chief for The Journal of Healthcare Design. He is the Dean and Professor of Health Innovation at the Melbourne Clinical School, University of  Notre Dame. He is a practicing general practitioner in Melbourne, Australia. He also has a great website that focuses on “Lean Medicine.” (click here)

We had a great discussion on the role of design in healthcare. We discussed the importance of listening to understand, what is working well, what is not working, and how to change the paradigm. We also highlighted the importance of understanding the ultimate end user in healthcare, the patient living in local communities.

I also had the opportunity to highlight the 4T’s: Time-Trust-Transparency-Transition.

We both left the dialogue with the take-away that the future of healthcare is dependent on great design, to put the ME-IN-MEDICINE and to deliver care at the N of 1.

I was deeply humbled to be asked by Dr. Jiwa to join his podcast. Please feel free to let me know your thoughts, questions, and comments.
