The aim of this project was to come up with a solution for a real-time cross-geographic doctor-patient interaction. It was done as a part of Wipro & GE Healthcare merge to understand and improve upon the current drawbacks and explore potential future women's healthcare solutions that could benefit a large number of rural women.
First and foremost, the project involved understanding the patient and doctor relationship, women's journey and experience and their ever-evolving needs and demands in parallel with the fast-paced development of technology. This was followed by the user research based on different geographical areas and in-depth discussion with women from remote locations. One challenge was understanding when a woman from a remote region tries to approach the doctor. A simple answer would be when she is not well. But the reason is far more varied when you zoom out and look at the bigger picture.
In essence, this project is an effort to understand and address the underlying needs of women at times of needing help, at all the stages of requirement, starting from preventive to screening to women's healthcare- screening- diagnosis- treatment and rehab for them in case of cervical cancer. It's an effort to map out the Indian virtual screening healthcare system by understanding the psychology behind the acceptance of notions behind it.
It has been an exciting journey over the last few months and documenting this journey of the whole process bit by bit - the process, progress, exploration, and failure is an attempt to find many answers.
