The importance of user-centered design in healthcare is truly life or death. Whether it's new medical devices or technologies; drug research, approval or delivery; patient forms or medical record sharing; or increasing the functionality of hospitals and everyday healthcare delivery, everyone is affected in some way by the intersection of usability in healthcare. There are many commonalities, yet each region of the world faces its own set of unique challenges.

The NYC UXPA and BNY Mellon has assembled an all-star team of presenters who will share a variety of perspectives and initiatives in digital healthcare, and will follow with a moderated discussion and audience Q&A. On this night, we aim to challenge your definition of "healthcare" and inspire you to use your UX knowledge and skills to not just improve the lives of users, but to improve lives.

All registration activities are handled by our volunteers. Please be advised that on the day of the event, we will do our best to manage transfers and late requests, but our primary focus will be on day-of-event logistics.

Regular registration closes at the EOD the day before the event -or- whenever seating capacity is reached, whichever occurs first.

Tickets are transferable up to 11AM the day of the event by sending a request to Transferees will please bring the transferer's registration confirmation in printed or digital form as backup. Transfer requests received after 11AM may not be received or processed.

If the event sells out early, a Wait List may be set up and managed by us on a discretionary basis. We will do our best to keep Wait-Listers informed about the status of available seating, but Wait Listers who haven't heard anything by noon the day of the event can assume there has been no change in status.

Attendees are asked to use our website to sign up for our events. NYC UXPA cannot register attendees in response to email requests.
