Digital Transformation and the Future of Healthcare

How the discipline of design can help the digitalization of the healthsector

Recent decades have seen a real revolution in the world, on a par with the industrial revolution.

Within just a few years, people’s habits and their way of life have been radically changed and transformed by the advent of new technologies. The digital revolution, which ushered in the digital age, has allowed many services and institutions to renew themselves, meeting people’s new habits.

Is healthcare keeping pace with this change?

Royal College of Art and  holded a Talk that addressed this change.

On May 9, 2023, Professor Ashley Hall, Professor of Design Innovation in the School of Design at the Royal College of Art, and Professor Venere Ferraro Associate Professor in the Department of Design at the Polytechnic, both experts in healthcare and wellness, discussed the role of digitization in the health sector, through the perspective of the design discipline.

The free online talk delved into this topic, examining how new technologies are changing products, services, and the experience in the health sector, and how people’s perceptions (physicians and patients alike) are shifting toward the future of health care.
