San Francisco, California (PRWEB) May 07, 2014
Cainkade and angelMD today announced the debut of a new event focused on the design and process involved with bringing innovative healthcare products to market.
Health and medical experiences are becoming as useful and delightful as the latest consumer software, and will empower us in ways we are only beginning to understand. From the gym to the examination room, human-centered design is transforming our health and wellness experience. RxUX will bring together thought leaders from healthcare companies, entrepreneurs, researchers, investors and clinicians for a unique fast-paced case-study format evening event.
RxUX will be hosted by Owen Thomas, Editor-in-Chief of ReadWrite, who covers digital health and fitness in his ReadWriteBody column.
“The demands of healthcare systems worldwide require innovation and disruption like never before,” said Tobin Arthur, CEO of angelMD. “Accordingly, RxUX won’t be the standard fare. The speakers, the format, the venue and the attendees ensure it will be an event where participants leave having learned something practical in the context of a first class event.”
“Sensors, mobile devices and cloud services are transforming the patient-provider experience,” said Eric Elia, Managing Director, Cainkade. “The amazing speakers at RxUX will take us behind the scenes, sharing the process and lessons learned in creating breakthrough new digital health and wellness products.”
