mPrepare (A Clinical Dashboard for Endovascular Surgery)

Endovascular surgery is one of the most complicated and technologically advanced surgical procedures, involving specialists in several disciplines, where the preparation and workup is complex with many steps. Managing this complexity in order to provide a high quality and safe service to patients within the current hospital infrastructures presents many challenges to the delivery teams, but is representative of the increasing complexity and technological sophistication of a modern healthcare system. 

The virtual planning system ‘mPrepare’ that I am co-designing with endovascular surgeons and researchers at Imperial College London is a clinical dashboard that gives the team an overview of the patient journey, from initial consultation to the operating theatre. It is intended to enhance communication between all the staff involved with each patient, with a view to improving planning, set up and the efficient running of a theatre as well as tackling significant patient safety concerns.

  • I intend to act as a mediator and translator in instances where an intermediary is needed to deconstruct complexity and distill ambiguity, to portray valuable assets and to convey essential values, knowledge, and issues to more people. 

    Over the past two years at the RCA I have taken a close look at the digital interfaces and system architectures that can support a complex set of interactions spanning a variety of tangible artefacts, environments and infrastructures, as well as various intangible aspects of such systems such as behaviour and communication. 

    I now wish to continue designing communication systems and knowledge media that can evoke more creative thinking and behaviours in service systems.
