Day 2 with Collaboratus 1!

Yet another important and productive day in our legion! After learning more at a few more workshops today, our group came together to continue discussing our concept and ideas! Each member came in with some research, diagrams, and sketches. We looked at the most prevalent complaints in patient care in offices and hospitals, and found that our ideas were backed up by facts and statistics. Patients are commonly unhappy with how long they have to wait, but more so when they are unaware of how long their wait times will be. Also, there are issues regarding the communication between patients and staff members, and the comfort of the patients in their rooms and the facility as a whole. Using this information, our group decided that those would be the key motivators for our design and solution. We dedicated a lot of time today to sketching and diagramming our ideas in order to get further feedback from yesterday’s discussion. In talking with our legion leaders and staff, we gained insight on ways to go about refining our presentation and concept. Each member of our group has provided so many great experiences, thoughts, and ideas, and now it is time for us to utilize them in such a way that will display an innovative solution to our healthcare problem. We also made a mock-up of the presentation board for Monday, and we are excited to continue that process tomorrow after a night of more research and concept building!
