Taking care of a body — your own and others — is darn tough. Our clients come here, to Healthmade, because we offer deep expertise in data-intensive interface design, diabetes technology and healthcare strategy.
Over the years, we’ve learned that our clients are innovators themselves: champions for change in their organization. They come to us for applied strategy of new algorithms and unique product features, or sometimes for a partner to answer a compelling question about a product or vision.
Some of our longstanding partnerships include:
We help our clients validate hypotheses, conceptualize core features, and implement service models. Our deep knowledge of healthcare combined with our love of design craft allows us to offer a unique set of skills and approaches to our partners.
Healthmade has grown from our founders lived experience with chronic illness and work alongside communities that have been historically de-prioritized in technology and healthcare, in the US and abroad.
Below are a few projects that we loved working on:
Together with Stanford University, we led the design of DiabetesWise and DiabetesWise for Providers (coming soon) — a non-biased resource that integrates psychosocial and lifestyle considerations related to diabetes technology for people with diabetes and the clinicians who support them.
We partnered with LifeMoves and Tipping Point Foundation to increase impact through imagining their service model for single adults who are accessing drop-in services including food, clothing, laundry/shower facilities, and case management.
We designed an experience demo that translated a pioneering machine learning method into a user experience for non-expert stakeholders to collaborate. The functioning prototype was presented by Vianai at Oracle OpenWorld 2019.
We translated clinical research into a consumer product experience for the Beta Bionics iLet — a fully automated bionic pancreas system. We led early stage UX research and brought these insights into a full user interface design that was handed-off to the internal development team for implementation and clinical testing.
Healthmade is a studio led by women and based in the heart of Temescal in Oakland, California. We believe that a balanced and varied lifestyle enables us to continue to enjoy our work.
