Should you outsource your UX design? In most cases, we’re solidly in the pro-outsourcing camp. We outline some of our top reasons why UX design should be outsourced along with the rest of your project.
Don’t waste time, money, and energy developing products or features that you aren’t sure people will want or use. Instead, develop a user experience strategy and keep your team focused on solving the right problems for your target users.
Micro animations are an oft-overlooked element of design. They may be small and mostly subtle, but they require careful planning and execution between designers and developers. It’s a good idea to think ahead to how these elements should factor into your project’s design scope and cost.
What does it take to deliver more value to end users with less effort? Wireframes. Low fidelity wireframes in particular are easy to draft but powerful when driving alignment between key stakeholders before the more complicated and resource-intensive work has begun. An easy step, but not one to skip.
Is software the silver bullet for fractured patient experiences? Not without the help of UX designers. When done right, technology can enhance the doctor-patient relationship. But digital health without great UX is like a staircase with uneven steps: disconcerting, unintuitive, and leaves users unhappy.

Miscommunications during discovery sessions could arise — a real liability since design is essential to shaping quality code and smooth user experiences. Speaking your team’s language is a sure-fire way to deliver a quality product from day one.
