Harnessing human centered design to improve health outcomes

We design solutions for complex healthcare challenges across Kaiser Permanente by identifying and addressing core human needs. 




Applying human-centered design, we learn what people say, do, think, and feel to understand the whole person. We use these methods to go deep with our patients, clinicians, and employees to gain a fresh perspective and uncover hidden needs. This approach helps us deeply understand problems, navigate and improve complex system challenges, and improve the healthcare experience for all.
