Current trends have expanded the role that people play in monitoring, managing, and making decisions about their health. Whether people are selecting the right health insurance plan, evaluating treatment options, or trying to comprehend and gain actionable insight from complex medical tests or their own fitness data, they are often faced with complex and unfamiliar information and data. Failure to make sense of this information can lead to anxiety, poor decisions, and missed learning opportunities. User experience professionals have an important role to play in improving health care by facilitating comprehension, clarity and actionable insight. In this session we will discuss how to design experiences that support complex decisions and sense-making in the healthcare space.  You’ll learn how different types of users approach diverse health information and offer you practical guidance on how to improve their experiences.
