Create an inspirational logo for OpenIDEO An commented on an idea - Breaking The Wall of Medical & Medication Errors Hi Saif Ali , I just think about a new idea: Casey mainly focuses on reminding patients of drinking their medicines on time (I'm sorry if it has more functions but I don't get the point). If Casey acts as a pharmacist, consults with patients, it will be far better. For example, when a patient has to take 2 medicines, if Casey can analyze whether it is suitable to drink the two medicines at the same time or not, it will be great! It's certainly uneasy and it will need lots of medical knowledge. But if you can some functions like that, I do believe that Casey will become a helpful pharmacist :D Best wishes! An commented on an idea - Breaking The Wall of Medical & Medication Errors Thank you for your answers! It's much clearer for me now! Best wishes! An commented on an idea - Incentivizing blood donation Hi Mohamed Shuraih , I add a new comment: the app is now designed for individuals. It will be perhaps better if it has some beneficial information for health managers such as blood type, GPS...of users. For example, if a disaster happens, managers will have prompt solutions if they know how many people who are able to donate blood, with particular blood type, live near the needed place. I hope this helps! Saif updated an idea Breaking The Wall of Medical & Medication Errors Digitizing the healthcare industry to eradicate Medical & Medication errors via modern-day technologies like Artificial Intelligence & ML. Saif commented on an idea - Breaking The Wall of Medical & Medication Errors Hi An thanks for going through all the stuff, much appreciated. And also thank you for liking the idea.Now for the points you highlighted.1. Yes, we have thought about offline situations, as I'm from Pakistan I know and understand the difficulties faced by our population and other developing countries with the same issues. But if you see, the Facebook chatbot is just a MVP/Prototype of the Casey that we actually want to built, which will most definitely have offline functionalities, this chatbot is just a rapid prototype one can say to just prove the concept, i.e it's a PoC. It's being improved as we speak.2. Time-zones are handled correctly by her, we use UTC and coordinate all other times zones accordingly by offsetting. Even if the patient travels I believe he'll still have to wait for set number of hours before taking a medication. But I think I get your point now, I'll keep this in mind, although Facebook platform is not very flexible, I'll make sure to implement this in our end standalone product which will detect for time/country changes and prompt user for actions. Thanks for this!3. Casey will be available 24/7/365. It's always-on technology. Even if we update, upgrade, amend or migrate our code/system, Casey will be still be seamlessly working and supporting patients, rest assured and thanks for asking this!Hope I answered correctly and yes I hope we'll get to talk and discuss more, thank you so much again for your time and attention!All the best! An commented on an idea - Staffing for pharmacies in Remote Areas. Hi Elvin, your idea is very realistic and helpful for developing countries. As you focus on under-served areas, I suggest you to add function on delivery. In remote areas, it's difficult for patients to buy all medicines they need. Thus, your app will be greater if it helps patients order medicines. You can read PillDrop of Johanes Mangane emphasizing on drugs delivery to remote areas. More broadly, I think your app maybe a platform for online drug sales that assist "netizens" to be consulted with qualified pharmacists and buy drugs at home! Hope to discuss more with you! An commented on an idea - Staffing for pharmacies in Remote Areas. Joel Manuel Alejandro I agree with you. In Vietnam, under the law, a pharmacy must be managed by a qualified pharmacist. In reality, pharmacies maybe managed by those who do not have a pharmaceutical qualification. I think Elvin wanted to improve the reality but the app should pay attention to the legislation. An commented on an idea - Incentivizing blood donation Hi Saif Ali , I also totally agree with your comments! The ideas of the app is great but how to make users use it frequently or "addicted" to it is quite difficult. Campaigns with famous stars as ambassadors, touching stories or gifts are indeed necessary. An commented on an idea - CMW Assisted Mobile based Primary Health Care System for Rural Pakistan. Hi Iffat, it's great to read your ideas! May you share more about how it will work? I understand that the app will help a doctor examine a patient via the app and the assistance of a nurse/midwife who is near the patient. So what is the difference between the app and softwares such as Skype? And what about the payment? If the payment isn't clear, perhaps less doctors will use the app. An commented on an idea - Breaking The Wall of Medical & Medication Errors Hi Saif, I have read your introduction, see your demo pictures and even chat with Casey! Your idea is so great. I work in the HIV area and your app will be a great tool to improve patients' adherence. Your app is quite complete so I will have to think about it more to give you more indepth comments! But now, I have some thoughts to share with you. 1) You should think about offline situation. Casey is a chatbot on Facebook but patients, especially in developing countries, don't always have the Internet connection. And Facebook isn't available in all countries so you may miss some huge markets like China. And Facebook sometimes can't be used for a short period of time. 2) Time-zone. Is Casey coded to deal with time-zone situation? If a patient has to travel too much, can Casey deal with this situation?3) Maintenance. I just chatted with Casey. It's in maintenance. I know it's just in pilot period and you will improve it soon. But in the future, how can you make Casey available 24/7? If you change your code or upgrade your system, can Casey support patients?Again, thank you for your very brilliant ideas. I hope we can talk more about it!
