DeLoach to introduce Infection Control Case Study workshop at the IDSA Medical Conference, The Usability Ecosystem (Nov. 6-8, 2014) at CAMLS in Tampa, FL. Read below to learn how this incredibly inspiring and courageous young SCAD alumnus has turned personal struggle into a mission to influence improvements in medical design from the patient's perspective.
Keynote | Designing Healthcare of the Future: Disease to Wellness to Swellness CLAY MARSH, MD
To sustainably improve the health of our population, health and healthy choices in communities need to become the norm. This presentation discusses our approach to this goal targeting the dimensions of health that include exercise, food, sleep, stress, social networks and family. We believe that the areas of Design and Design Thinking are critical to construct health ecosystems and optimize user experiences. These complex systems are asymmetric, where a few agents or elements are more important than others. Ecosystem design allows us to initially target the high value areas of exercise, and envision how to construct an ecosystem that makes healthy choices and health the norm by bending the world around the person. This presentation will discuss how we are trying to construct this ecosystem with designers, focusing on optimizing the user experience at the interface level, and layering this experience set with precision tools to navigate individual decisions and nudge community decisions and offerings.
Keynote | Life and Death and Devices: Lessons from the Creation of a Critical Care Physician JORDAN BONOMO,MD
This presentation will briefly describe the training of a modern "resuscitationist” and emergency physician through the indelible lessons taught in residency and fellowship. From the perspective of medical devices we call upon daily, we’ll follow a critically injured patient through the pre-hospital helicopter EMS environment, the Emergency Department, the unique care received in the OR and ICU and ultimately organ donation. This journey will focus on the vast arsenal of equipment involved in critical care and resuscitation and the challenges clinicians face daily in providing high-level, high-stakes critical and resuscitative care. This journey includes mindful debate of the cost of medicine and the failings of ultra-early prognostication. We will touch on newly developed strategies of using advanced resuscitation devices to increase organ donation and the future of the interface between devices and the ethics of dying (and living) in the modern world of ultra high-speed medicine.
