- What is An Event Apart?
- A lot of what you do revolves around the design world. This includes your business as well as your driving passion to improve medical design. Why do you want to improve medical design?
- If you could change one thing related to medical design right now, what would you do?
- As a patient advocate, what are you doing currently to help improve healthcare?
- On April 1st, you were scheduled to speak at HxRefactored, a conference that draws thought leaders and entrepreneurs from the design, technology and health industries. You are scheduled to speak on a panel titled, “Patient-Centered Design: Core Values in Health Care.” What do you plan to discuss?
Eric Meyer is an author, speaker, blogger, sometime teacher, and co-founder of An Event Apart, the design conference for people who make web sites. He’s been working on the Web since 1993 and still finds it utterly compelling. His experiences within the medical industry as a patient advocate for his daughter created a driving passion to improve medical design. His panel discussion at HxRefactored will draw on his personal history as a father as well as his long career on the web to show how medical design gets it wrong, and illuminate a path to getting it right.
Eric lives with his family in Cleveland, Ohio, which is a much nicer city than you’ve been led to believe. He enjoys a good meal whenever he can and considers almost every form of music to be worthwhile.
