Master thesis Proposal - Optimizing User Experience for Blood Pressure Patients

Do you want to be part of the creation of the future health care?

By allowing chronically ill patients to continuously measure their blood pressure in their home, one can get a more accurate measurement basis than primary care can offer today. With these data, doctors can better make decisions about what care interventions need to be done, such as proper medication. There is an app-based solution that addresses this issue, where measurement data is transferred from a Bluetooth-connected blood pressure cuff via a mobile app to a cloud service. A challenge is to get patients to have a smooth and satisfying experience of the measurement process, so that you want to stay as a user of the service.

The purpose of the exams is to systematically evaluate the parts of the existing app already aimed at retaining the user, and then through user tests and surveys make new proposals for attractive ways to further enable a user to engage in the service.

Company information

Accumbo bygger Sveriges första digitala vårdtjänst som är specialanpassad för patienter med högt blodtryck. Högt blodtryck eller hypertoni som det också kallas, är den enskilt största orsaken till hjärt-kärlsjukdom såsom stroke och hjärtinfarkt. I Sverige har vi ca 2 miljoner vuxna med högt blodtryck.

I dagsläget finns både digitala vårdcentraler och hälsoappar för att logga blodtryck, men ingen sjukvårdstjänst som kombinerar båda, och fokuserar på individualiserad vård av kronisk sjukdom.

Vårt mål är att skapa en bättre hälsa för patienten och minska belastningen på den traditionella sjukvården vad det gäller kroniska sjukdomar.
