Coupling compliance with User Experience

By Hilary Stephenson | 08/01/2015

We'll be extending our event programme this year to cover specific industry themes. Our first event of 2015 looks at the challenges and opportunities around improving the User Experience of applications used in regulated environments, looking at how people are coupling UX with compliance in life sciences and health tech. 

Event overview

Rapid growth in the mHealth and activity tracker market, advances in wearable tech and increased use of mobile devices at home, work and play have brought about new approaches to application design. In the life sciences and eHealth sector, this offers new challenges for data integrity and compliance but also new opportunities for application developers who have traditionally dealt with interfaces, informatics and data visualisation in an entirely enterprise or desktop interface setting, who may not have had to focus on User Experience in an increasingly competitive application landscape.

Sigma are hosting a free evening event for 70 people at the Life Sciences Hub Wales in Cardiff on Wednesday 25th February. It will cover new ideas for application design in the life sciences and eHealth field, looking at UI design, mobility, regulatory challenges and user experience across the corporate and public arena.

Speakers include Warren Fauvel, Co-founder of Nudjed, Simon Wegerif, Director of HRV Fit Ltd, Chris Bush, Head of UX at Sigma and Mark Stevens, Operations Director at Formpipe.GxP. 

Places are limited for this free event. You can register and read more about each session at the event page. 

The talks are aimed at product managers, digital innovators, developers, investors, start-ups and IT leaders who need to rethink their application design approach for this new way of living and working. It will be friendly, interactive and you’ll have the chance to ask questions and network with fellow attendees and speakers.

Registration is from 5pm, talks 5.30-7.30pm, with networking and refreshments.
