Editorial Reviews

Review

"It seems like everyone in digital health has checked the "user-centered design" box. Geriatrician Leslie Kernisan MD has more experience than almost anyone using and evaluating digital tools intended for seniors and their caregivers. As anyone who's read her great stuff on The Health Care Blog knows, she's been disappointed by the tools she's found. 
 But instead of despairing, Leslie has written a deeply practical guide for anyone building a tool or service for seniors, complex chronically ill patients and their care givers--and it should be required reading for anyone who cares about the health of the elderly." 
- Matthew Holt, Co-Chairman, Health 2.0 Conference 

"If you want to design tools that will meaningfully solve health problems for the elderly, read this book. Leslie is truly a human-centered design expert for the field of geriatrics."  - Joyce Lee, MD MPH, Healthcare Design Expert, Assoc Prof of Pediatrics & Public Health, University of Michigan 

"As a cancer-beating Baby Boomer who just turned 65, I have some pretty strong feelings about the differences between what healthy developers think versuss what aging people actually need, to manage life as their health gets more complex. 
 You cannot solve the practical needs of people swimming in that pool by standing outside and imagining what it's like in there; you must get wet. This book is written from the front lines of wetness and, from Dr. Kernisan's years of experience, describes what will actually help people achieve better health while aging."
- e-Patient Dave deBronkart, Healthcare Thought Leader, Speaker, Author

"If your app is explicitly or implicitly impacting the aged community, then this book is required reading."
- Fred Trotter, Co-Founder Careset Systems
