For this group university project we had to identify a real-world problem and develop a solution that helped solve it. Focusing on the National Health Service our solution of Carepoint aims to alleviate the unnecessary stress for patients and nurses that comes with taking daily food orders in hospitals.
Image 2 - This storyboard of our final presentation was used to explain our research findings about our project theme.Key issues such as the administrative task time for nurses, patient malnutrition as well as paper wastage, were all key to this project.
Image 3 - This is our final produced document that acts as a user guide for our final solution. Carepoint works by using digital technology (in this case a mobile touch-screen device) to consolidate patient menuitems and allow nurses to select and organise patient choices more easily. The large pictures of menu items means patients with poor sighting can point at what they want. Also, nutritional icons remove unsuitable items from a patients menu, reducing the potential of them receiving the wrong food.
