This solution was the result of a Design Thinking seminar, promoted by SENSAR, where surgeons and anesthesiologists expressed their worries about the fact that patients do not understand their instructions and do not assume their responsibility either. Provided that an innovative approach could face these challenges, the MVOS Project came up with the goal of raising the patient’s awareness of the importance of their engagement on their own safety throughout the pre- and post-operative process. Therefore, MVOS is a co-designed solution driven by health workers. Also, health professionals will continue closely participating, providing advice, support and confirmation throughout the Project process.
As a result, MVOS will help to overcome and fulfill a real life need, clearly expressed by health professionals. The final users have been involved since the beginning on the Project, to ensure that the application characteristics matched their needs.
