It’s all about you! Your medical records; whenever, wherever.
The challenge: To create a system that would collect your existing medical records wherever they might be whether on an electronic medical records system or even on paper and give you full access to your records wherever and whenever you need to share them with a medical practitioner.
My role & approach: The idea for medi.me came to be from a conversation a friend and I had many years back that was based on an experience he’d had after moving to the United States and experiencing the American medical system and it’s failures with medical records. We bootstrapped and worked together leveraging our skills to come up with the best product for people. We used design thinking methodologies to brainstorm ideas, talked to people in the medical industry from administrators to doctors, and spoke with everyday people to figure out where these systems were failing them. I focused on using my vast network of friends across industries to help us connect with the right people. As well as focusing on the UI design for the app, website and prototype while making sure we were ADA compliant (Accessible to people with disabilities). And we collaborated on the UX.
The impact: The app never launched but from what we we’re hearing then and what I’ve seen in the the healthcare space over the past couple of years this idea is still being worked on. Including companies using blockchain technologies to try to solve this challenge.
