I was so excited to have the opportunity to present some of my thoughts at my very first Medicine 2.0 (held this year at Harvard Medical School) about the culture of healthcare and how that needs to adapt to make room for better design. Five minutes is barely enough time to scratch the surface of such an institutional, widespread issue, but it seemed to strike a chord with the audience and I look forward to follow-up conversations for many months to come.

I was also paying attention to other people’s sessions, believe it or not. Have a scroll around my sketch notes.

The Embedded Designer: The Next Big Step for Healthcare Systems

Here’s the bootleg video of my presentation captured by our charming moderator, Gonzalo Bacigalupe:

My abstract

Buy a copy of Distance 2 for the full 5,000 word e-book version of my essay on Embedded Design for five measly bucks or a beautiful print copy for $15.


Kudos to my colleagues for their important work both creating and presenting at Medicine 2.0.

Very proud to say these are my colleagues.
