Our client wanted to connect geriatric patients and medical professionals nearby and bring medical care to their homes. Geriatric patients have to undergo check-ups and tests every so often, which, while necessary, is challenging for most of them. Our client specialized in geriatric care and wanted to reduce the number of monthly visits. They intended to bring healthcare to their homes without compromising the quality.
Challenges & Goals
We conducted detailed surveys to understand the tests and procedures geriatric patients undergo every month. With the help of our in-house medical team, we narrowed down the procedures that could be done at the patients’ homes. And with this knowledge, we developed the perfect solution.
