Listen in while designers slash healthcare entrepreneurs,
Tina Park and Miya Osaki, share their revelries and
wrongdoings of running a business.
Things are about to get weird.
This marks the third episode in our “Designing for Healthcare” series. You know what that means: we made a trilogy. We’re basically George Lucas.
In Season 2, we chatted with an expert designer, and in season 3 we talked to an expert doctor. And now we’re closing it out by speaking with a different kind of expert: a patient advocate. We are so excited to welcome friend of Diagram– Jen Horonjeff, to talk about the absolute necessity of gaining patient perspectives through co-design.
But wait there’s more! Jen is also the Founder and CEO of Savvy Cooperative, a patient-owned service that matches companies and researchers directly to patients. Join the conversation about how to work with patients in design and how valuing patients’ insights empowers them to own their stories and their experiences, rather than simply accepting healthcare the way it is.
Sit back and tune in for the final episode of our epic healthcare trilogy. And when you’re done, head over to Savvy’s YouTube page to watch Jen’s interview of Miya and Tina in her #SavvyChat series!
PS: Oh we almost forgot! Tina has never seen the Godfather movies.
Hey Yah, No friends, we’re back, and we’re ready to get down to business! Business and healthcare, that is.
Miya and Tina are kicking things off this season with a spirited discussion about rising healthcare costs and how employers are starting to get creative in footing the bill. What are the pros and cons of these new models? What’s best for the patients/employees? Who’s going to take care of the population outside of this system? And what about employers having access to your health data? (Miya is creeped out by this, Tina disagrees!)
Tina and Miya take a moment to break down what these models look like and who stands to gain from them- or lose out completely.
Hey Yah, No friends! Do you miss us yet? It’s been a whole month since we released our last episode of season 3. Lucky for you, we’ve been working hard to bring you our first ever BONUS episode of Yah, No.
If you loved Episode 29–Disability and Social-Minded Design, where we had our conversation with extraordinaire Sara Hendren–(stats don’t lie, we know you loved it), then we can’t wait for you to listen to this surprise follow up episode.
Be sure to tune in as we round out our conversation about design, disability and accessibility with Sara’s insights on aging, dependence, and adaptation, and how we can start to reframe our assumptions about what makes a good life. It’s just a little something to get you through these last hot summer months while you eagerly await our brand new season.
