The desire for healthier and longer lives has resulted in
continuous research and advancements in the healthcare industry. Over the last
two decades, technology has fundamentally altered how people communicate, do business,
and even travel. However, it also impacts us in a much more intimate way,
affecting our health and daily wellbeing.
Technology has the power to make healthcare more accessible, by making it
cheaper, easier to access and understand. Yet, the mass population’s continued access to healthcare is tenuous,
which prompted us to explore ways of leveraging on technology to get better
healthcare to more people, promptly.
Health applications have evolved over time to handle a multitude of
tasks. There are several health applications that are designed to tackle
simple tasks, whereas others are more advanced and they can control
high-resolution imaging, real-time monitoring, and more high-level functions.
These advanced feature apps are beneficial for patients with chronic conditions
such as diabetes and asthma, who can easily monitor their health at home and
avoid multiple visits to the hospital. However, these applications are
generally difficult to use.
We at Ouch seek to bridge this gap by keeping consumers in mind and combining
powerful and advanced application functions with an intuitive design philosophy
to provide better access to healthcare.
