Why “Human Experience” rather than Customer / User Experience?

Although in business lingo “experience” is usually discussed in terms of “customer experience,” “user experience,” “patient experience,” and so on, a more meaningful approach is to think of it all as “human experience,” and to help your company develop its own approach to meaningful touchpoints and technologies for the people who interact with your products, services, and brand.

Kate O'Neill at DevLearn

“What do I mean by “human experience” and human experience design? I think human experience is the natural successor to the narrower ideas of customer experience, user experience, patient experience, etc.— all of which point to a common need to understand, with equal parts empathy and strategic business-savvy, a person’s ideal path in interacting with a company, brand, product, or service.”
