S4E8: Somi Kim

Somi Kim is senior director of healthcare solutions at Johnson & Johnson Design.

Healthcare, Kim says, is about more than just products and procedures. It’s about observing people and learning about their needs:
To be a designer now, one has to consider the breadth of an experience and to prioritize what is going to make the best difference for that person, who at their heart isn’t a patient or a healthcare provider, they’re a human being.… We can’t just do it in a vacuum with only ourselves, we need to partner with many, including the people themselves who we want to benefit from our products and solutions.
