Q&A with Peter

HxD asked speakers to tell us what inspires and drives them in healthcare and design. Check out our Q&A with Peter Eckert!

« Previous Next »
  • Q1: What is your burning mission in health?

    Through research, design and development create solutions and resources that empower patients, nurses and doctors.

  • Q3: Why it inspires you?

    The people that I work with that want to make this world a better place to live in.

  • Q4: What is your patient story?

    My family has a genetic disorder called Huntington’s disease. Living through this terrible disorder and seeing family members suffer, has taught me much about life and how to manage everyday challenges in life. Going through the process to find out if I was carrier of the genetic disorder was incredibly stressful, but thanks to the excellent German healthcare system I was helped along the way with the right support. I wish the people in the US could experience a free system that supports all levels of society equal.

  • Q5: Why HxD?

    What better place to share what we did in this project.

  • Q6: Why come to your session?

    You will learn about the power of contextual user research and the resulting innovation.

Peter at the Conference

CONFERENCE | Monday, March 25

Rethinking the Fertility Patient Journey

The Reproductive Medicine Associates of Texas (RMA) is not the first client to engage projekt202 in the hopes of becoming better, faster, more efficient, and more creative in their approach to problem-solving and ways upon they offer their services; but they are the first to ask us to apply our processes and skills to finding solutions in physical and emotional space. We believe that our findings and the documentation we have begun to create in response to our observations and hypotheses offers an opportunity to begin a very fruitful dialogue between interaction designers and healthcare providers on how the principles of user-centered design can be applied to improve the experience of medical service for both patients and providers.

"Last year's HxD conference was so amazingly inspiring, and has definitely caused me to strive harder and become more passionate about improving our healthcare system." - 2012 HxD Attendee
