As we move into the summer season, our faces are sunkissed and full of vitamin D. We are at the peak of our health, spending afternoons next to the Spree appreciating great health and, when weather permits, a pleasant temperature too. Yet we want to pull you away from this, for one evening, to discuss how we as designers are guiding the future of healthcare.
This July, we invite our community to come together with Marion and Frederike from the SAP innovation centre in Potsdam, and John from the Dublin based design agency Frontend.com, to inform us about their work in the healthcare sector, and the results and implications of their projects in this industry. As well as the talks, we will also have our usual pre and post talk banter, including the open mic and the job board.
If you aren’t able to make it at 7pm, please join us as usual, for some post event drinks and mingling at Café Cinema, Rosenthaler Str. 39, 10178 Berlin, just next door – here's a map.

Digital Health: Roll-your-sleeves-upMarion Fröhlich, UX Manager
Frederike Wanstrath, UI/UX Designer
The digitalization is radically transforming the healthcare sector. Big data, interconnectivity, automation and customer expectations are changing today's healthcare landscape. While there are plenty of opportunities for improving healthcare services, the actual challenge is to design and ship digital solutions that not only change people's lives for the better, but also create a sustainable business model for different stakeholders.
While several mobile applications exist to document the intake of medication or to track the vital data and via mobile phones, we face the challenge to systematically integrate this data into treatment process of physician and general practitioner in order to improve patient outcome. How can we build digital services that consider the whole healthcare ecosystem?
In their talk Marion and Frederike will share their personal insights won at SAP Health Innovation Hub, where they discover and craft new products and services in the area of personalized medicine and life sciences. From creating seamless experiences to privacy restrictions to cultural shifts, they will address today's challenges of healthcare designers.
