It’s Care Management –  

Research had shown that there is a high rate of error in dosing medication for inhabitants of elderly homes. The failures can occur during the daily dosing set-up of medication, the distribution and allocation of medication under time pressure.

With around 10 master students from Visual Design of the York University, Toronto, Canada, a four-day-workshop was held to develop an alternative approach to the practice in drug dispensing. Based on the analysis of workload, schedules, and given solutions, prototypes had been iteratively developed. One of the developed solutions shows a color based system for dispensing modules combined with a visual person-related indication plan.
