«next» / Smart TV Application




«next» is a platform for patient self-education. It uses the preinstalled TV in the patient’s room, connects it with the electronic medical-records and offers patients the opportunity of getting information irrespective of time of day or medical staff, not only about their disease and medication, but also about the often non-transparent procedures and processes in the hospital itself. In the end, this encourages patients to adhere to doctors’ orders, empowers them to take active part in their own healing-process and builds the foundation for achieving health together.

I feel very proud that the jury chose my project as one of the award winners! It feels like this honor makes up for the countless hours of work and getting such feedback also shows me that I am on right track.
