Attendees gained an understanding of current trends and discovered market changes that are shaping the future of health and medicine. The K:D team reflected on how researchers, strategists, designers, and mechanical engineers can help medical device companies address some of the medical device industry’s biggest challenges, such as improving usability and workflow, improving patient compliance, introducing new technology, and responding to market changes such as the consumerization of healthcare.
