Applying the principles of human-centered design to real-world health care challenges, from drug packaging to early detection of breast cancer. This book makes a case for applying the principles of design thinking to real-world health care challenges. As health care systems around the globe struggle to expand access, improve outcomes, and control costs, Health Design Thinking offers a human-centered approach for designing health care products and services, with examples and case studies that range from drug packaging and exam rooms to internet-connected devices for early detection of breast cancer. Written by leaders in the field—Bon Ku, a physician and founder of the innovative Health Design Lab at Sidney Kimmel Medical College, and Ellen Lupton, an award-winning graphic designer and curator at Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum—the book outlines the fundamentals of design thinking and highlights important products, prototypes, and research in health design. Health design thinking uses play and experimentation rather than a rigid methodology. It draws on interviews, observations, diagrams, storytelling, physical models, and role playing; design teams focus not on technology but on problems faced by patients and clinicians. The book's diverse case studies show health design thinking in action. These include the development of PillPack, which frames prescription drug delivery in terms of user experience design; a credit card–size device that allows patients to generate their own electrocardiograms; and improved emergency room signage. Drawings, photographs, storyboards, and other visualizations accompany the case studies. Copublished with Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

Creation begins with stillness on the brink of movement. MOVED TO CREATE guides you through a simple ─ and powerful ─ system to consciously move energy and create the change you want. It engages all the elements of your body, mind and spirit, to move you into your best life, work and relationships. The beauty of this system is you can use it over and over to meet the challenges of constant life changes. “Julie Delene with her presentation of Moved to Create simultaneously teaches, inspires, and builds real-world problem solving skills. This insightful book offers far more than a metaphor that emerged from her years as a dance instructor and leadership development specialist. Julie’s MOVES process is a rich model for human development. I highly endorse approaching adult development in a way that addresses the whole person—mind, body, emotions, spirit—and Julie brings it all together in a step-by-step system that is immediately practical. It will help you create the life you truly desire to live, with design principles that keep you in harmony with yourself, the earth, and the universe.” —Paul R. Scheele, Ph.D., CEO, Scheele Learning Systems, co-founder of Learning Strategies Corporation. “Julie Delene is a sparkling spirit, and her love of truth and movement comes through in her book. She motivates us to remember how much we can learn from the wisdom of the body. She reminds us to move, and to create.” —Mary Hayes Grieco, Author of The New Kitchen Mystic and Unconditional Forgiveness. “Julie Delene has written this marvelous book on how to envision, create and sustain your authentic life. Her book gives many simple and yet powerful exercises you can use to take control of your life, your joy, your health and your relationships. I highly recommend reading and following her advice.” — Kathryn Harwig, intuitive master and author of 8 books, including her latest Become a Psychic Wanderer.
