About the Seminar: 

Despite myriad technological advances in our society, medicine and medical technologies seem to be heading in the wrong direction. Most of the time. What are we forgetting? The people. Doctors, nurses, patients, and caregivers are being left behind in the advancement. Doctors are complaining that they can't keep up with the additional workload of "meaningful use," patient care isn't improving as doctors can no longer make eye contact while serving the computer during appointments, patients are being overwhelmed with complex systems that serve insurance companies but not health care, and caregivers are not being supported. Where does anthropology fit? Everywhere. To build great systems that delight and support, we must study people in their native environment. It is time to make computers think like people, rather than people made to think like computers and programmers. There is much work to be done, but if done properly, joy can be the result.

About the Presenter:

Richard Sheridan co-founded Menlo Innovations in 2001 with the mission to "end human suffering in the world as it relates to technology" by returning joy to one of the most unique endeavors mankind has ever undertaken: the invention of software. While Menlo's work for clients affects nearly every industry, much of their product development and systems work has been in the medical including the design and development of the software for the Accuri Flow Cytometer, the Organ Transplant Information System for the University of Michigan Health System. Menlo has also designed the user interface for amazing advances in diabetes care through Hygieia's d-Nav Insulin Guidance Service, and revolutionizing non-vocal critical care patient communication with Vidatak's Vidatalk for iPad app.
