Yes, I know it has been way to long since our last event, but I promise that it was worth the wait.

In the past 3 years, Debré Barrett has spent a lot of time hanging out with nurses and doctors in a variety of settings - from township clinics in shipping containers, to specialist surgical teams in tertiary hospitals. She has watched them use a variety of apps on phones, tablets and desktop computers. And she's noticed that the same UI mistakes are made over and over again - and the impact of those mistakes can really ruin someone’s work day.
