Designing a service to empower factory workers and drive measurable CSR impact
QuizRR Case Study
Millions of factory workers producing the goods we buy and use every day are unaware of their basic rights and responsibilities when it comes to health, safety, and workplace policies at the factory. This results in a decreased quality-of-life for factory workers and an increased risk for tragic accidents to occur at factories working with global brands. Together with the founders of QuizRR, we designed a multidimensional web-based knowledge platform that includes a digital training tool to educate and empower workers around their rights and responsibilities, as well as a reporting tool that helps connect global buyers with responsible suppliers and production partners.
Improving healthcare by empowering patients to shorten the journey to diagnosis
The ability to successfully treat Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) depends largely on how early the disease is detected. Unfortunately, in today’s healthcare system, the journey from initial onset of symptoms to official diagnosis of RA is unnecessarily long. Together with Karolinska Institutet and the Karolinska University Hospital we designed an online screening service for Rheumatoid Arthritis that empowers patients and helps shorten the journey to diagnosis--so treatment can begin earlier, with more successful results. Today, 6000 people in Sweden take the online screening test every month, providing a valuable decision support tool that guides both patients and care providers in the journey towards diagnosis and treatment, making medical visits more meaningful, efficient and effective.Online Screening Case Study
