MA work

With a background as a medical doctor, my goal is to find new solutions to adapt emerging technologies to medicine and healthcare. This project aims to rethink the challenge of communication within healthcare today, focusing on the future of medical health records, clinical information transfer, and the doctor-patient relationship.

Today’s medical records are text-heavy and inflexible, with information spread across different systems. Trying to get the whole picture of a patient’s health and history is time-consuming, and failure to put together all the information can lead to problems including misdiagnosis, inappropriate testing, and frustration for both the patient and physician. When a number of doctors are treating the same patient, breakdowns in communication and partial information can seriously affect treatment, recovery and ongoing care.

The project takes its inspiration from 3D design and cloud data management to build a graphic and intuitive interface where all the information is accessible in one place. As well as bringing data together, the record is designed to give a visual overview of a patient’s health, so that whatever the health professional is focused on, he or she is also made aware of other issues affecting the patient. The goal is to improve user experience for both clinicians and patients, enabling collaboration for better treatment solutions, and ultimately facilitate better patient outcome.
