Digitisation in healthcare

In an earlier blog we shared that the annual Oliver IT Hackathon took place. Last week was dedicated to 'Waaris Guusje?', which supports the problem: Help, my child is lost. This week: Dagplan-R: an application that digitizes the use of pictorial signs.

Meet Dagplan-R

Part of the Oliver IT Hackathon and makers of Dagplan-R.

The creators of Dagplan-R are:

Mathieu van Tilburg, Solution Architect

John van Pelt, Full-stack Developer

Niels Doesburg, Full-stack Developer

Digitisation in healthcare

From the three societal themes presented, the team of Dagplan-R has chosen to work with the theme of pictograms in disability care. People with a mental disability are guided in their daily routine by means of daily changing pictograms. A pictoboard indicates from moment to moment which activities someone has to undertake. This provides structure and overview for the clients. A pictoboard is therefore indispensable. Similar pictograms require a lot of individual and manual work. Within the hackathon we have therefore looked to make this process simpler and simpler, by means of digitization.

Dagplan-R

The Dagplan-r solution consists of two applications, one for the client and one for the healthcare professional. The healthcare professional sees a user-friendly interface for composing the day overviews of a client. From their own workstation the healthcare professional can set up their own day plan for each client. It is also easy for the healthcare professional to make changes during the day, if necessary, by adding, moving or deleting activities. The client then sees his own personal day overview on a device suitable for him. This provides peace of mind and overview for the client.

How did we realize this solution?

To substantiate the relevance of the software, the Dagplan-R team presented the functionality using stories from the Agile methodology, using Personas and Use Cases.

In terms of technology, a web app has been chosen, created with React/Redux and TypeScript. The app communicates with a backend of MongoDB Stitch, written in Node.js.

Why the Oliver IT Hackathon is so much fun!

Mathieu van Tilburg, Solution Architect

My first Hackathon ever. Lots of dynamism and creativity and an incredible result realized in a time frame of 24 hours.

Do the simplest thing that could possibly work, otherwise you have to work very hard ;).

Niels Doesburg, Full-stack Developer

By working with boilerplate code from our daily practice, the results were so solid that they can be taken into production immediately.
