Inspiration for some of the best medical technologies has come from observing care administered in the most extreme conditions. In an attempt to gain that inspiration, Worrell researchers and designers visited sites across Europe and North America, interviewing the world’s busiest ER surgeons. Worrell expected to identify new products and workflows for those settings, but instead discovered systems and products already fully capable of rapid, coordinated, protocol-driven care.
As a result, Worrell asked this question:– What if the best way to improve the practice of emergency medicine is to keep those who don’t need it away from the emergency room? What if there was a way to receive non-life threatening medical attention in the comfort of your own home?
