Designing for Health: Interview with Chris McCarthy
What comes to mind when you hear the word design? Probably clothing, sleek new tech, or maybe a vehicle. But design and design choices are a part of things we interact with every moment of the day. From the construction of roads and sidewalks to the curve of your fork, the small details that make an impact are thoughtfully designed in a way that suits their purpose. Designing for healthcare experiences and outcomes should be no different.
In this episode of the In Network podcast feature Designing for Health, ILN Coaching & Consulting’s Chris McCarthy speaks with Nordic Chief Medical Officer Dr. Craig Joseph and Head of Thought Leadership Dr. Jerome Pagani. He discusses his pathway to healthcare innovation, how he was inspired by a Ted Koppel Nightline episode highlighting grocery carts, and how he began using the principles of human-centered design (even before any formal training) at Kaiser Permanente. This episode is the first of two with Chris McCarthy.

About the Show
When it comes to how healthcare works in the U.S., one wonders, who designed it? Well, no one. And that’s the problem. Dr. Craig Joseph and Dr. Jerome Pagani speak with luminaries from across the health ecosystem about how to make healthcare work for humans. The upshot? The way out of the frustrating, expensive, and frequently ineffective quagmire of the U.S. healthcare system is to take a step back and bring intentional, human-centered design to an ecosystem that works for the people giving and receiving care.
