The guide to building better digital healthcare solutions, faster.

Digital healthcare is booming. Smartphones have become increasingly advanced tools for gathering data, designing digital experiences to elicit behavioral change and build habits is well-documented, and mobile health apps in general have never been more popular. And then there's also the elephant in the room: COVID-19. It's put immense pressure on healthcare businesses, leaving many scrambling to adapt. So how do we leverage digital technology to address these issues, and go beyond what's commonplace? More specifically, how can you build digital healthcare products effectively, and efficiently?

Why you should care:

Here's a quick peek at what's happening right now:

  • Mobile health apps are surging, but the only winners are the ones that are truly user-centric and offer a simplified user experience.
  • Telehealth solutions are next, especially now given the almost global quarantine situation. Many new virtual consultation platforms are just around the corner.
  • New devices, sensors and wearables are hitting the market as we speak, leaving plenty of untapped potential for new diagnostics and data collection platforms.

If you're working in healthcare and you're scouting for new opportunities to scale your services better, you might want to check this out.

This is what you're getting:

Sure, you'll need skills and expertise, but the real secret to speed is having a proper process in place. And this is where many companies, big and small, fall short. It can take them months, even years, to launch a new digital product or service.

But it doesn't have to be like that. There's a process you can implement to launch, say, a virtual consultation platform for dermatologists, in a matter of weeks. We know, because that's what we did.

This process basically consists of three steps:

  • Defining the strategy, and designing a prototype.
  • Testing that prototype with real users to validate it.
  • Executing a six-week agile sprint cycle to develop an MVP.

The nitty gritty of this process is explained in full detail in the document, so go grab your copy!

Bothrs introduced us to design sprints for the revamp of our digital brand and shop environment. In one week we'd defined goals, challenges, inspirations and solutions. We got everyone involved and aligned from the start! We’ve turned months of unstructured, ineffective processes into one intense week of strategy, prototyping and testing.
