Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
Ottawa (July 13 2012) - Macadamian, a global leader in user experience design and software development, today announced that two of the company’s product design experts will present at the 9th Annual Healthcare Unbound Conference & Exhibition, taking place July 19-20 in San Francisco.
Macadamian’s Director of Research, Lorraine Chapman, will deliver a presentation titled, “Usability for Healthcare Unbound.” The workshop will explain how companies in the Healthcare Unbound space can create better solutions by following best practices for design evaluation and user performance testing like the guidelines recently released by NIST for EHR (electronic health record) systems.
“Usability is a critical factor in user adoption and patient safety for health related products and services,” said Ms. Chapman. “While companies in the Healthcare Unbound space are not bound to the NIST guidelines, they refer to user experience design best practices that can help vendors create mHealth, Telehealth, eHealth, CloudCare and consumer health solutions with better consumer/user engagement, increased user adoption and improved health outcomes.”
Matthew Hately, Vice President Product Strategy and General Manager of Macadamian’s California office, will take part in a panel discussion, “What’s Next for mHealth.” This panel will explore some of the dramatic ways mHealth is already transforming healthcare. The panel will tackle some of the serious questions concerning mHealth, offering insights and solutions.
Forrester Research coined the term “Healthcare Unbound” to encompass the trends toward technology-aided self-care, mobile care and home care. The conference will focus on remote monitoring, home telehealth, mHealth, eHealth, social media and gaming as ways to help manage diseases, promote wellness and facilitate accountable care. Macadamian is a sponsor of the Healthcare Unbound conference.
