We introduce you to Joop Petit. He is the innovator director at Phidias Community Innovation. We wondered what he is thinking about the importance of creating a well-functioning design concerning healthcare 2.0?
At a place with a whole lot of nothing, a lot can happen! This sentence also counts for the Mikadoterrein, where the number of disabled clients halved….
Because of all the empty houses and the a huge amount of space, designers can reimagine the way we used to take care of the disabled people and create the future of healthcare. The reason for reimagining these processes and methods has everything to do with the rapidly changing world we live in. All kinds of new innovations developed but still are not integrated in the existing sector of healthcare.
However, the designer should not only focus on the technological part of innovation and development, but also on the social and emotional part. Only by designing the total package and by anticipating on the emotions and feelings of the users, there is going to be a well functioning exploitation.
So design with care and take care of the integration of innovation and developments.
