Designing for Information Consumption at Varied Distances in the Operating Room: A Cross-Functional UX Team Approach

What if you had to design an information display that needed to be read by users 2 feet, 5 feet and 30 feet away AT THE SAME TIME? And, what if the information was needed by different users in a highly stressful, critical environment - the operating room (OR)? In our presentation, we'll talk about how we approached this design challenge as a multi-disciplinary team, which brought together user experience research, interaction design, and visual design expertise. WeÕll also discuss our process and share the design principles we used that helped make our design a success, and that you can apply to your own design challenges.
