MedAcuity and Fathom Consulting to Present Free Webinar on “Creating Safe Usable Medical Device Solutions”

Panelists Will Explore the Importance of Design and Development Collaboration to Keep Projects on Time and on Budget

WHO: MedAcuity, the go-to Boston-based software development partner for leading MedTech companies, and Fathom Consulting, a Minneapolis-based human-centered design consultancy providing extensive user experience (UX) design capabilities.

WHAT: The two companies, which earlier this year announced a partnership to support the full-service needs of medical device clients, will be presenting a free live webinar titled “Creating Safe Usable Medical Device Solutions”. Experts from both companies will explore why continuous collaboration between designers, developers, product owners and end-users is essential to creating truly innovative, highly usable safe medical device interfaces.

Topics addressed will include:
– breaking down communication barriers
– putting users first coupled with safety and reliability
– why to prototype
– when to user test
– avoiding FDA pushback due to poor UI/UX design
– meeting business objectives
– ensuring reasonable development efforts

Attendees will gain a better understanding of how tight collaboration between design and development – before, during and after the UX/UI design – greatly increases the likelihood that the UX/UI will be effective, can be implemented within the constraints of the device, and meets business objectives and goals while truly satisfying end users. The panel will be followed by an interactive audience Q&A.

WHEN: Wednesday, September 15, 2021 | 12:30 – 1:30 PM ET
