Clinicians The unique value proposition for head clinicians is to improve quality of consultation time with patients; whether this be increasing the length of consultation or allow for more pertinent interactions with patients. The triage system achieves this through providing clinicians with information regarding patients’ symptoms prior to consultation as well as ordering patients in terms of priority. Consequently, clinicians will be able to utilise their consultation time more...

USSD TRIAGE SYSTEM At present, the proposed solution for the Health Project is a USSD based triage system. The solution will take on a USSD format to allow for maximum usage - as it will be available to anyone who has access to a feature phone. At its most basic level, the program will allow patients to input their symptoms into the system upon arrival at the clinic. This will mean that clinicians will already have an idea of their patient’s condition before consultation and will not need...

Experiment Results

Reference to Experiment Post: This experiment focussed on validating if when spoken to on the phone, clinicians identified with the sentiment of feeling ‘frustrated by a lack of quality time spent with patients’. A further objective of the calls was to establish contact with clinicians and begin to build a relationship. Experiment post:  https://projecteverest.crowdicity.com/post/998070 Lean Phase: Problem Assumption: People within our customer segment identify with the...

Experiment Results

Lean Phase: Unique Value Proposition   Assumption : Testing customer success rate of moving through the Customer Pipeline   Results : 14 clinicians were sent the Information Pack following on from the offer testing (phone calls and text messages, seven successful responses from each).   There was only one reply to the email to organise a meeting, so the seven that were called received a text message asking if they’d received the email and if they were ready to set up a...

Experiment adopted

Research protocol (RP) stage 1 is divided into two smaller components: RP1a and 1b. This is because they examine and assess different aspects of patients’ ability when communicating symptoms. They are included together in stage 1 because the methodologies are performed simultaneously. Statistically, 246 data points are required to obtain a reliable result from our correlation tests.   *RP1a and RP1b are conducted in conjunction with one another*   Lean Phase : Solution Assumption...

Work Update

        Overview In the past, FarmEd has explored supply chain management, face to face consulting, drone consulting and agricultural expertise workshops. While there is value in the above products, moving forward, FarmEd aims to focus on the development of the app itself as the app has proven to be the most scalable and accessible way of providing agricultural expertise. Over July 2018, the 3 FarmEd teams focused on determining the viability of the FarmEd app: FarmEd I tested the...

Post not complete

The Problem   Too much of the past data collected by previous FarmEd groups has been unquantifiable and unanalyzable. This is due the fact that the metrics for simple questions such as ‘Do you have access to a mobile phone’ change monthly. With responses ranging from – ‘yes, my brother has a smartphone’, or ‘yes, I own a Nokia’. Whereas the answers can be kept discrete by having the following three options to the previous question: -       Yes, my own phone. -       Yes, somebody...
