Ser agentes del cambio solo es posible desde un enfoque sistémico centrado en el usuario. En este contexto, las alianzas y sinergias son claves de cara al desarrollo de soluciones de diseño capaces de mejorar la vida cotidiana y la salud de las personas. Es fundamental conectar con la tecnología, acercarla al trabajo de los profesionales de la salud para atender las necesidades del futuro.
