Research
During the first semester at Parsons School of Design we were conducting research in the space of “living and dying.” My team was exploring the capabilities of data to improve care for those particularly with chronic mental illnesses that will positively impact lifelong healthcare from the start of care to the end of life. We identified an asymmetric information balance that places disproportionate burden on the patients in collecting and accessing data. Additionally, we observed a passive patient involvement in data in which patients generate information but that few mechanisms exist to keep them engaged with data after that point.

 




THE GOAL

Acute Holistic Care





DESIGN PRINCIPLES


These principles break down our main goal of acute holistic care into tangible outcomes.








CRISIS NO 1


The first crisis moment during the patient journey occurs when visiting a new doctor while filling out the patient intake form. How many times have you filled out that form? How many times you weren’t entirely sure and your responses might have differed?








CRISIS NO 2


The first crisis moment during the patient journey occurs when visiting a new doctor while filling out the patient intake form. How many times have you filled out that form? How many times you weren’t entirely sure and your responses might have differed?





CRISIS NO 3


The first crisis moment during the patient journey occurs when visiting a new doctor while filling out the patient intake form. How many times have you filled out that form? How many times you weren’t entirely sure and your responses might have differed?
