      GUEST SPEAKERS:

      Hal Rosenbluth:
      Co-Founder, Chairman of the Board, Take Care Health Systems
      President, Convenient Care Association

      "The New Patient Experience – Blending of People, Technology and Emotion"
      Hal Rosenbluth's presentation will focus on the new, innovative
      approach to Patient Experience in Healthcare, which blends People,
      Technology and Emotion. Hal Rosenbluth will discuss how his company
      has designed a new patient experience that makes the patient the
      center of attention and considers all the touch points along the way,
      from the moment the patient walks into the clinic until they are
      discharged.

      James E. Mitchell
      Associate Professor and Director
      Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering Program
      Drexel University

      "Looking at Buildings - Usability Issues"
      James Mitchell will look into issues that architects and engineers
      face while designing buildings. The built environment has long
      required careful consideration of usability, although that word is
      seldom used. Examples range from Building Codes (e.g. Americans with
      Disabilities Act) to Design Standards, to safety regulations (OSHA).
      The consequences of failure are often measured in human lives. The
      presentation will touch on some of the examples of successful and
      unsuccessful usability designs in both the architectural and
      engineering building design.

      Stephen B. Wilcox
      Ph.D., FIDSA
      Principal, Design Science

      "Using Cultural Anthropology & Information Graphics to Improve Medical Products"
      Stephen Wilcox will show how ethnographic research from cultural
      anthropology can be applied to medical product development in order to
      save lives and improve the quality of medical procedures.

      World Usability Day promotes usability awareness and the value of
      everyone's contribution to make thing work better. Last year, 115
      events in 35 countries took place during the 36 hour period, attended
      by over 8,000 people around the world.

      University drew over 100 people to the keynote speaker presentation by
      Thomas Tullis titled "Usability and the Evolution of Technology, or
      You Shouldn't Have to Read a User Manual to Ride an Elevator!". The
      event also featured Usability Museum, 5-minute Site Reviews, and Mock
      Usability Testing.
