Sometimes it’s not all that easy to identify and prioritize user needs to ensure that they drive relevant decisions throughout development. Check out our Q&A with Insight’s Director of Research and Strategy Carolyn Rose to get some insights on this topic.
Craig Scherer and Carolyn Rose talk about the importance of effectively identifying, prioritizing, and translating user needs into design guidance in their latest Med Device Online article
Turning user needs into design guidance is a key component of developing a successful medical device. The primary goal of this process is to develop a device that not only meets the FDA’s criteria for safety and effectiveness, but also one that provides the best possible user experience for all stakeholders.
The successful application of user-centered design principles relies on iterative and frequent feedback from stakeholders throughout the entire development process. This research also provides the design team information with which to identify, document, and better manage risk throughout the design cycle.
