I’ve recently been working with a healthcare startup in the DC area called Tuple Health. Tuple Health’s goal is to make it simpler to deliver high quality healthcare at a lower cost. We believe fixing healthcare starts by relentlessly focusing on improving the user experience for clinicians and patients. To address these challenges, we draw on our team’s shared expertise in clinical care, payment reform, software development, mathematics and human centered design. We provide services alongside developing technology, which deepens our understanding of the pain points users are facing in an industry that is rapidly changing.
We’re looking for:
1) a design researcher/service designer in the Washington, D.C. area conversant in the healthcare space to work on a current client project.
Our client, a DC based health system, is looking to redesign its orthopedics service line and the business model underpinning it. You work with our clinical experts in helping our client design services that provide value to and build long-term relationships with multiple stakeholders in the orthopedic space, such as community-based orthopedic surgeons; commercial payers; self-funded employers; and patients.
You should be able to design and lead a research study to help uncover the needs of different stakeholders. Some questions might include:
- What makes different types of orthopedic surgery facilities (especially inpatient) valuable? What opportunities are there for improvement?
- How do surgeons choose which facilities to work with?
- How is the patient experience affected by the facility?
- What do payers look for in a bundle around these services?
The research will take place in the DC area exclusively, so we are looking for someone already in the area. If you or someone you know are a good fit, please have them contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2) The other person we need is a UX designer.
Pluses are experience in healthcare and data viz or designing tools for analytics (think dashboards). The current product they’d be working on is a tool to help oncology clinics make sense of claims data, though there are other projects in the pipeline.
Please feel free to forward this on to designers you think would do well in this role. We’d prefer someone in the DC area, but it’s not a necessity, since we often work remotely from each other. This would start as a contract, but could turn into a full-time position if the fit is right. If you or someone you know are a good fit, please have them contact me directly at email@example.com.
