Design with Patients in Mind

Patient-Centered Design Alliance

"A thoughtful healthcare designer, no matter how accomplished, remains a student of the patient." 
-Tammy Thompson, Founder ; Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc.

The Patient-Centered Design Alliance is the official membership program of the Institute for Patient-Centered Design, Inc. This program was formed to promote a strong network among design professionals striving to create a supportive healthcare environment for patients and their families.  


Our group is comprised of patients, clinicians, administrators, designers, researchers, educators, students, manufacturers, and other stakeholders dedicated to improving the healthcare environment through collaboration, education, advocacy and research.  


Inside the PCD Alliance, we place personal gain and competitive interests aside to brainstorm on design solutions that can improve the healthcare journey for countless patients navigating the healthcare system.
