We stand for healthcare UX

The Clinical User Experience Association (CUXA) is the leading authority on user experience (UX) in healthcare.

Health is a basic human right. We recognise that optimising the usability, accessibility and happiness people have when interacting with digital health and tech is paramount to maintain this human right.


We are an international group of clinicians, UX specialists and IT professionals who strive to  improve the quality of user experience in healthcare across the world. By working together, we have the power to dramatically improve the quality of UX in healthcare for the benefit of all.


Our members continually develop their understanding of Healthcare UX and raise the bar of best practice. Our events include talks, interactive workshops and courses. We will soon provide resources here on our website and welcome contributions from our members and the wider community.

We need you!

We are always looking for new people to join our international team. 

By becoming a member you be joing a global community of professionals, working together to bring great UX to healthcare.
