Day 1 – Orior 6

The workshops were lovely and we gained a lot of knowledge about healthcare and how this information can drive our project.  The team building process really helped us build our teammate skills. After that the day started off with workshops with each teammate attending at least one workshop. But, before going to these workshops we read the scenarios and discussed the areas of personal health we could dive our feet into. We decided to go into creating a system or product that could be interactive and create a connection between the RN, PhD, and patients. After finding this we searched for pain-points that would create which brings issues to the system which are malpractice and frequent flyers. They bring issues such as ER waits, prioritizing appointments, and triage which is how nurses rates injuries based on a five point scale. Later we talked to the advisors and they led us to not fall into the product as a solution. We then looked for what drives a frequent flyer. Most of these are caused by poverty such as lack of insurance, medical knowledge, and access to priority care. . With this information we looked for demographics like their health, race, and background.  We came to the conclusion that the healthcare system is a huge mess that needs a lot of fixing and we can only find a solution to one minor problem. Our problem we want to fix is fixing the frequent flyer issues that would stop clogging the the ER rooms.
