The health sector provides a difficult context for the development of services. It is a large, complex, and highly regulated environment with many different stakeholders and conflicting interests. Healthcare services tend to be less linear than most consumer services because many customers and users with different needs can be involved in a single service. The services are also quite intimate and rely heavily on human interaction, making it nearly impossible to have a one-size-fits-all solution. Therefore, the development of health services requires an understanding of the context and the ability to consider different points of view.

Years of experience designing services with a wide variety of healthcare organizations have enabled us to better manage complexity and provide our customers and end-users with what they want and really need. These ideas can be summed up in 3 interrelated general principles: experiment, participate, and illustrate.

“The human body has been designed to resist an infinite number of changes and attacks brought about by its environment. The secret of good health lies in successful adjustment to changing stresses on the body.

— Harry J. Johnson

Experience

The rapidly changing healthcare environment requires flexibility to respond quickly and continuously to changes. The challenge is that health services strive to avoid risks, so they are often a bit conservative when trying new things. However, risks can be managed much more effectively by early experimentation as new services are developed.

Quick Service mockups can be made and tested quickly and inexpensively. This helps guide the design process by showing which ideas are worth investing in before spending a lot of resources to bring them to life. Constant and iterative validation and co-design of service concepts ensure that the final service is tailored to the user's needs and that resources are not wasted on unnecessary functionality.

Allowing experimentation while imagining will also reduce participants' fear of failure, leading to better participation and thus a wider range of possible solutions. In addition, service prototyping makes it possible to research multiple ideas at the same time, allowing things to be combined in innovative ways, increasing the chance for innovation.

Get involved

The design of health services requires an in-depth understanding of the field and the various social, economic, and technological drivers that influence health care. This type of knowledge is often rooted in organizational silos and can only be obtained through knowledge networks that span different professions and institutions. Involving experts from different aspects of the service creates a common understanding of the challenges, opportunities, and preconditions of the project.

In addition, much of the knowledge of the users’ needs is latent, meaning that it is not spoken aloud, but can only be accessed by understanding the users’ feelings. The best way to gather this information is by co-designing with the users and by observing how they prioritize and value things while making decisions related to the service.

Co-design has also proven to improve the stakeholders’ engagement in the project. People that take part in the design process see their own impact on the outcome and are more likely to feel ownership over it. This improves client satisfaction and ensures that the people involved are willing to endorse the new operating model.

it’s An Exemplify

Health services are often difficult to imagine or describe, as they mainly take place in intangible interactions and are based on complex organizational structures. It is difficult to design something that is difficult to understand and communicate, especially as the development of services requires collaboration between experts from different fields with their own vocabularies and points of view. In order to be understandable, it is therefore important that things are as tangible as possible.

The concrete representations of the service function as a common language for those participating in the design process and facilitate the understanding of all. Realization allows participants to view things from different angles and encourages them to plan and act. In this way, it becomes possible to use the knowledge of the different actors involved in the process. Tangible models also help distribute and optimize services to better align resources with users' and market needs.

In addition, visualizations are a powerful tool for communicating visions of desired future results. An inspiring future scenario can be a motivator, as it allows us to propose a radically different alternative to the current reality. Future scenarios also help validate a common goal for the project by linking it to the long-term vision of the organization. A visualized lens can have a lot of meaning and acts as a good decision lens during the design process.

Health is one of the most important blessings for every individual, technology and new innovation plays a vital role on almost all procedure and practices performed by healthcare professionals. The significant improvement increase in its demand for medical treatments
