Adaptive Path occasionally dabbles in healthcare-related design projects. Here's an article about their work with healthcare and service design: http://www.adaptivepath.com/ideas/rapid-service-design-for-healthcareWhile less on the front end of healthcare (e.g. less on prevention), I know Epic Systems and Cerner both actively hire UX professionals to help design and evaluate their healthcare software.
Thanks,This video was truly inspiring because it touched on some of the things that I want to pursue. As an industrial design I never really had the feeling that I could create something that would influence people for the better. The idea that by developing an interaction you could possibly change the way people regard their health is quite empowering.
Great post. I have been thinking a lot about this recently. That is, interaction design is so much broader than making web interfaces more usable. If google can use billions of bits of information and make it accessible in an intelligent way, can we not design medical data to be more integrated.
