Abstract

We are now, more than ever, aware of the social challenges that face us globally, keeping healthy is at the top of the list. Increasingly in the last ten years, designers have turned their attention not just to designing to alleviate and prevent illness but designing specifically to increase individual and community wellness and health. Digital health design has been one of those dimensions adopted to address the challenge. In this opinion piece we posit that in the domain of digital health all design should be socially responsible in order for us to consider it good design. Drawing on the history of socially responsible design and the emergence of digital health applications we propose Ten Principles of Socially Responsible Digital Health Design.
