DOCSF22: Digital (Orthopaedic) Transformation: Human-Centered Design and System Thinking in Health Care

In this episode, Kenny O'Neill, partner, and principal of Digital Strategy, Transformation, and Innovation at EY Global, talks about human-centered design, how it then evolves into systems thinking, and its applicability. Kenny starts by talking about his experience as a pilot and the similarities between what he sees in healthcare and a plane cockpit when it comes to information being displayed to users. He then explains how human-centered design is building things for specific users, integrating the information into the system so that it can work effectively for the said user. This type of design requires engaging and empathizing with them, prototyping continuously, and always aiming toward extreme users to get the best possible performance for everyone.  Kenny goes into systems thinking at scale within healthcare. He argues it's about thinking about how human-centric design and technology connect to the broader, interconnected system. It’s innovating in the digital space and using platforms to aggregate and translate data that can better enable AI, machine learning, and robotics. He also speaks of taking behavioral and social ecosystems into account and the use of digital hospital practices, consultations, and primary care from smart homes. Kenny then foresees 15 years forward to envision healthcare’s future. He predicts out-of-hospital precision medicine facilities, more digital tools integrated into hospitals, and different bundled or episodic payment models. Listen to Kenny O’Neill talk about human-centered design in the future of healthcare. Learn about how it can evolve into systems thinking and how it can be applied for the better!

In January of 2021, theWhite House’s U.S. Digital Service recommended that the government “break up the current monopoly” that oversees what is formally known as the Organ Procurement and Transplant Network. That monopoly the United Network for Organ Sharing, the nonprofit agency that operates the transplant system, has held for 36 years and worth more than $200million, funded mainly by fees patients pay to be listed for transplants. It is a complex collection of about 250 transplant-performing hospitals; 57 government-chartered nonprofits that collect organs in their regions; labs that test organs for compatibility and disease; and other auxiliary services. The mechanics of the entire transplant system must be overhauled, the review concluded, citing aged software, periodic system failures, mistakes in programming and over reliance on manual input of data.

A Rare Collection – Easier Said Than Done

ONCE UPON A GENE - EPISODE 147 A Rare Collection - Easier Said Than Done There's power in storytelling- for the listener and the storyteller. A Rare Collection is a monthly series featuring people from the rare disease community, sharing a story with a common theme.  EPISODE HIGHLIGHTS Katie Stevens, Executive Director of Team Telomere It's back to school season which has me thinking about how the education system so often fails the most vulnerable children. In 2015, we moved from Idaho to Boston. My son was set to be the sixth patient in the world to undergo a clinical trial for people with Telomere Biology Disorders. We had been searching for the best treatment for my son for years. His body was no longer able to fight viruses and infections, he couldn't stop bleeding and he didn't have enough red blood cells to keep him from feeling easily winded. He was a 12 year old boy whose day-to-day was filled with worry and he just wanted to be "normal". Getting your child an education when critically ill or disabled is easier said than done. I'm thankful for the teachers that stood up for my child. Education for the most vulnerable children of our society shouldn't be dismissed.  Parvathy Krishnan, Foundation Alliance Manager at Global Genes As a child I was always told nothing was impossible and everything would be okay if I saw the positive. I truly believed the ups and downs of life were part of the journey and I just had to see the positive. When I had my first child, I had my parenting journey mapped out and anticipated ups and downs. It was instead filled with potholes, car crashes and train wrecks. It was hard to see the positive when everything seemed bleak. Through our diagnostic odyssey, and through various aggressive treatments taking place concurrently for both of my children, it was hard to find the positive and I felt like I was failing. Hope was a mirage. I felt a medical breakthrough was the only positive that would give me closure. But I was wrong. A smile from my children was the positive I needed. While it's easier said than done to find the positive, even when it feels impossible, remember to turn on the light and hope that this too shall pass.  Becky Tilley, Koolen De Vries Syndrome I'm a passionate writer and advocate. In all the articles and blogs I've written, you'll see the common sentiment to celebrate your uniqueness, be yourself, and enjoy being you. In real life, that's challenging to do. The symptoms of Koolen De Vries Syndrome that myself and my two youngest children share can vary from mild, to moderate, to severe. I grew up with learning disabilities. I was an easy target for bullies. I never learned what it was to love and celebrate what made me different and this is something I want for my children. I want them to be empowered in who they are. For them to do that, I need to be an example, especially as a mom that shares the same syndrome. I feel a responsibility to them to celebrate being unique and inspire my children to do the same.

LISTEN AGAIN: Achieving Optimal Wellness through Nutrition

Kim Ross is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Dietitian Nutritionist (NY), Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (FL) and Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner. In this interview, she highlights numerous ways in which women can improve their health naturally. Listen in to learn about: What nutrients do hormones need? How can a nutritionist help with hormone imbalance? Nutrition vs Dieting: What is the Difference? How to make incremental shifts in your eating and lifestyle to decrease toxins and increase health What are the symptoms of malnutrition? “To simplify it, women have a natural rhythm. We function on a moon cycle (a menstrual cycle) in addition to our circadian rhythm, which repeats approximately every 24 hours. When we sleep, eat and move our bodies actually does matter. We have a lot of ups and downs with our hormones throughout the month. What you eat changes that affect. What time you eat and how you eat changes that. If you eat in a good mood or bad mood, that affects things. Our organs detoxify at different times. Our cortisol hormones, in addition to other hormones, increase and decrease at certain times. Our body temperature increases and decreases at certain times. We need to listen to the female intuition as to how our bodies are functioning. I think that people could listen better to what their body needs. If you’re craving something like sugar, maybe you need vitamin C or water. Listening to what you’re craving tells you what nutrients your body might need. Also, respecting and paying attention to the hormonal cycle, which affects the decisions we make every day.” - Kim Ross Check out the Nutrition and Exercise Spotify Playlist and curated resources in the Fempower Health store.
