We're #DesignResearch.

What we're all about.

Think of us as a quick, temporary extension to feed your team actionable analysis useful for their next step. We help extend your healthcare team’s reach and understanding of your community – whether local families, community leaders, internal teams or healthcare workers.

Our model is simple. We deploy multi-disciplinary teams into your community or boardroom. Together with your delivery-side experts, patients and community members, we conduct interviews and observations which become the basis of our mixed methods analysis.

We can provide both qualitative and quantitative research, and articulate findings in recruitment and adherance, product design, market evaluation, patient education and patient engagement strategies.

Current Project

Researching Life with Chronic Conditions
With the innovative team at California-based Canary Health, we're exploring the journey towards healthier living in the context of chronic conditions.  Canary Health's "Better Choices, Better Health Program'' is an evidence-based self-management program for people living with chronic conditions.   
How we can help.
Here are some of the questions we can help your team explore through Design Research and complementary quantitative analysis tools.
How might we improve access to healthcare for our English-Learners community?
Product Features
How might we design the most useful and safest VR Tool to support surgeons in the OR?
How might we tap into patients’ deep motivations for better health to remain engaged into long-distance healthcare programs?
Patient Engagement
How might we encourage eligible mothers to utilize the free WIC services?
Public Health
How might we influence mask wearing for safer use of public space?
Marketing Strategy
How might we build on insights from everyday life with asthma to redefine our relationship to patients?
