Dave Davis :: Dreaming the Perfect Exchange
If you haven’t noticed, the ICN Exchange team thinks you’re special. Why? Well, when we set off on this journey to create...
...we weren't really sure how to do it. So we asked for your help, and you have continued to tell us what works and what doesn't ever since. You have given us your time and your ideas and we hope you can see the difference it has made in making the ICN Exchange the knowledge-sharing tool you need. A platform that helps all of us pursue our shared mission of transforming care, health and costs for all kids with Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis - of being the 'cure for waiting for the cure'.
We have always known that our work is rooted in community-building, and connecting people and ideas; not necessarily in technology. Your participation continues to confirm our belief.
Here’s what we've learned, as you have joined our team in dreaming of the perfect ICN Exchange:
- Multiple “repins” of the same item can be confusing
- When an item is “repined” the conversation happening in the comment section does not transfer
- It would be great if you could search for a person, and if the search function were more efficient generally
- It can be hard to find what you are looking for, i.e. the navigation of the site should be more intuitive
- It’s difficult to upload and share items properly, especially if you have a lot to share
- On some mobile devices, the ICN Exchange experience is not great
ICN Exchange users, please let us know if we've missed anything.
P.S. If you want to learn even more about the ICN Exchange, check out our Harvard Open Forum Idea submission, an effort led by Dan McLinden. This is our response to the question: What proven innovations have you created that would enhance health care value in the U.S. if broadly disseminated?

BTW you can follow the ICN Exchange on Twitter, it's a great way to keep in touch & tells us what you think.
