Simply put, clinical and management software globally available to healthcare professionals fell short. This was a huge issue considering up to 40% of their workday consisted of low-value, repetitive tasks like scheduling, billing, reporting, and note-taking. Small teams are left to continuously juggle a range of single-feature or legacy programs and manual processes – creating further complications around information and workflow silos that drive staff burnout, deliver poor client experiences, and cost lives.

The need for this style of intuitive software was clear, but we couldn't design a truly effective solution for the global community without first discovering their fundamental needs and wants.
So, from the start, we collaborated with 700+ healthcare professionals to gain invaluable insight and co-create Carepatron. Together, we ran behavioural interviews and questionnaires – ensuring we not only met the basic needs of our community, but built on them, resulting in a platform they would love to use every day.

Early on, we discovered that a lack of modern software meant practitioners regularly used insecure and outdated tools. Therefore, our design had to cater to all skill levels and be accessible across different devices, resolutions, and screen sizes. The result: a sophisticated yet simple user experience, focusing on common UI patterns to bring a...
