Design Language Systems are unique. Some companies create systems for efficiency and reuse, and others make them to express their look and feel.

With a storied background in this space, Yujin Han and I—Design Manager and Experience Design Lead, respectively—know the challenge of getting teams to contribute.
Using systems thinking in patient safety: a case study on medicines management
Systems Thinking, Unlocked – Airbnb Design
Systems thinking is used as a way of understanding behaviours and actions in complex healthcare organisations. An important premise of the concept is that every action in a system causes a reaction elsewhere in that system. These reactions can lead to unintended consequences, sometimes long after the original action, and so are not always attributed to them. This article applies systems thinking to a medicines management case study, to highlight how quality-improvement practitioners can use the approach to underpin planning and implementation of patient-safety initiatives.

In this course, you will be able develop a systems view for patient safety and quality improvement in healthcare. By then end of this course, you will be able to: 1 Describe a minimum of four key events in the history of patient safety and quality improvement, 2 define the key characteristics of high reliability organizations, and 3 explain the benefits of having strategies for both proactive and reactive systems thinking. I was a little time consuming in the first week because of my work schedule.
