We start with the patient and build our technology from there.

What is human-centered design and why does it matter?

Simply put, human-centered design is a problem solving technique that puts real people at the center of software development.

The goal is to keep user preferences and pain-points front of mind during every phase of the design process. This process yields more intuitive and accessible solutions.
