Symptogram / Pictogram Design


Good communication with a doctor is a starting point for curing patients. However, between medical volunteer doctors and patients, enough communications are rare since they use different languages. Moreover, most interpreters on the site are students, not experts. As a result, doctors rely more on examination than what the patients tell. This requires more time to find out patient's disease. Also, the risk of overlooking the initial phase rises since not every patient can be examined. I suggest Symptogram sort out this problem. Patients can explain their condition with Symptogram even if they cannot speak the same language as doctors.
