Redivus Health (then SORA) was building their first product and needed a product design lead to improve usability, accessibility, and help define the final feature set before launch.
They hoped to tackle three major areas that were plaguing hospitals: Code Blues, Sepsis, and Stroke. Each one of these issues cost large hospitals hundreds of millions of dollars each year and threatened patient lives. Each of these conditions was also difficult to diagnose at critical moments, yet there did exist best practices and standardized flow charts to navigate these conditions - the issue was time and access.
For Code Blues, in particular, the survival rate was under 12%, but for many hospitals, the event was rare and complex enough that under the stress of the moment, it was difficult for medical staff to remember how to navigate the event. These events are extremely time-sensitive, and any hesitation puts everyone at risk.
For both stroke and sepsis, time is essential but often progressed over hours, instead of minutes.
The Redivus team hoped to use an application to track, inform, and coordinate diagnosis using established practices. By integrating with EMR systems as well, events and history would be auto-documented, saving nurses hours for each patient.
