Cooperation platform for quality assured communication between the veterinarian, horse owners and other parties
|Funding from Vinnova||SEK 900 000|
|Project duration||June 2018 - December 2019|
|Call||Innovative Startups phase 2 spring 2018|
Purpose and goal
The goal of getting a sufficient knowledge to know how a quality-assured collaboration platform for the veterinarian and the horse owner´s team is to be designed and developed via pre-study and prototype has been partly achieved December 2018 and is expected to be achieved in its entirety at the project´s end of December 2019.
Expected results and effects
We have been able to validate a large number of our assumptions theoretically using the basis of the field studies at veterinary clinics and horse owners and other actors and will have validated these in practice by means of a prototype before the end of the project.
Planned approach and implementation
Parts of the digitization are new to the horse industry. Regardless of experience level and education, the feasibility study shows an uncertainty of technical solutions among users. Common is that you often choose to work as you have always done because there is a certainty that it "works". The study demonstrates the value of collaborating across borders between horse owners, veterinarians and others to validate the critical problems together in order to create new improved routines and technical solutions, but also to identify problems that one party lacks awareness of.
