Purpose and goal
The purpose of Create sparks is a digital service to meet the needs of the relevant target groups and healthcare in the social aspect of palliative care. The goal is to develop a digital service that is sustainable, personalized, inclusive and scalable and can bring the target groups closer regardless of geographical distance and influence the situation in a way that contributes to a higher quality of life in the present moment.
Expected results and effects
The need and the interest from the target groups and healthcare institutions are more encompassing and concrete than we expected. There are a request and a high demand for digital tools and this has made it possible for us to begin conversations with several important partners and experts that are necessary to reach the ultimate goal and be able to implement Create Sparks in the healthcare ecosystem. The next step is to test Create Sparks in a hospice environment.
Planned approach and implementation
We have conducted interviews with business leaders, analyzed research reports, conducted extensive monitoring of the outside world and thus gained a solid understanding of the needs, challenges of the target group and stakeholders. Based on an innovation process (Design Thinking), we have carried out several user-centered workshops with relatives and experts and with insights and conclusions from all this we have developed a prototype that gives us the opportunity to test and iterate the concept with the target group.
