In recent years, the workload in the healthcare sector has increased significantly and especially in times of COVID-19, the pressure on healthcare proved to be enormous. Therefore, digital innovations play an important role in supporting health specialists in their job. E-health solutions can help in reducing the pressure on health specialists and make better and faster diagnoses. One of the conditions that require a lot of effort and that is time-consuming for both patient and health specialist, is a food intolerance. More and more people are getting food intolerances because of our way of living and are getting a certain digestive response based on their food choice. Food intolerances may reduce the quality of life of people and could cause exclusion from social events and groups. Many health specialists use an exclusion diet and food diaries to understand patients’ food behavior to finally make a diagnosis. However, it is a big challenge for the patients to stay motivated during this process and it is challenging for the health specialist to make a diagnosis.
Through a user-centred design process, we have developed Digesti, the only digital digestive diary that motivates patients for daily use through a swift and efficient way to input data so that health specialists can give a proper diagnosis to potential food intolerant people. Below, some images and a video is shown to explain the final concept.
