Should we start-up the Healthcare Usability Association?
A large number of organizations and medical providers have gotten together to do what the government should be doing, but is not. Those organizations are:
The Alliance for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety (AQIPS),
The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC),
The Pew Charitable Trusts
They all talk about usability, but there are no usability in healthcare organizations. So UX experts have little voice.
We should build up a community of interest that can have a voice and can influence policy. We need your particiption.
Let's start with the linkedin group Healthcare Usability: https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4197493
