Creating a platform to help caregivers of advanced disease patients

The Challenge

Fundación Telefónica and Obra Social La Caixa asked us to design a digital space that would enable them to scale their current caregivers’ training program by turning it into a digital platform.

The Solution

Cuida, the first platform for caregivers of people with advanced diseases that allows quick and easy access to knowledge and support, relevant to each caregiver needs, and backed up with a community of experts and volunteers.

The Approach

EMPATHISING WITH CONSUMERS

We had 1-1 in deep conversations and observed caregivers and volunteers with different histories and personal situations. This helped us identify key insights and design principles to start defining the ideal user experience for caregivers in need.

DESIGNING COMMUNITY OF CAREGIVERS AND EXPERTS

We found out that the digital format would allow caregivers express freely with others in the same situation, at the same time, the content should be adapted to different personal needs and should be back-up with experts opinion to be relevant to the users.

DESIGNING AN IMPLEMENTATION ROADMAP

We delivered a final product implementation roadmap, prioritizing the short, mid and long term efforts and activities. We the defined specific roles and assigned a clear ownership to each of the tasks, in order to align teams and make the vision happen.

Impact

The two main social foundations of Spain intend to launch Cuida in 2020 to multiply the social intervention x10, moving from 30,000 impacted families to 300,000.
