Designing for looking after patients at home

Healthdot

 

Healthdot is a wearable sensor for patients who are discharged from hospital, which aims to enable clinicians to still look after and monitor patients during the first few critical days at home.

 

The healthcare landscape is changing rapidly. Increased complexity, patient volume, and pressure on devices and system integration demands new approaches and thinking in the delivery of high quality care to your patients.

 

Healthdot is a concept designed by Philips to help address these trends. Healthdot is a wearable sensor for patients who are discharged from hospital so clinicians can still look after and monitor patients during the first few critical days at home.

 

During the design process, interviews with elderly patients revealed that many struggle with home measuring devices that require bluetooth pairing, charging, pin codes, instructions, etc. Based on these interviews the connectivity was radically changed to eliminate phone or bridge connections, and the device was redesigned to automatically send data directly to the cloud.
