Pill Please 22/23

Sixty per cent of Poles surveyed admitted to taking some form of medication and 41% reported that they have a chronic illness. More than half (56 per cent) of Poles have suffered or are still suffering from at least one disease of civilisation in the last five years, such as high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes or depression.

In view of the deteriorating health of the Polish people, I have decided to create a tool that will provide ongoing support in the daily process of taking medication. I would like to introduce you to the Pill Please app.

01 Problem

Research confirms that the problem is real. More than half (56 per cent) of Poles have suffered or are still suffering from at least one disease of civilisation in the last five years, such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, cancer, diabetes or depression. The number of people continuously taking medication continues to rise. 4.5 million people bought prescriptions for five or more active substances in a six-month period. (NHF report: Everything you need to know about poly-pragmasy, 2020).

02 Research

In the course of developing a suitable solution, a series of studies were carried out to explain the problem of the increasing use of medicines by Poles and to provide an insight into the daily process of dealing with illness. Desk research and in-depth interviews (IDI) with respondents were used to find an appropriate solution. The research was conducted in person or using the Google Meet tool.

03 Solution

Create a design for an app that solves respondents' key problems.

Pill Please app - real support for the pharmacological process!

Features of Pill Please

Pill Please schedule

Effective notification system

Notifications that clearly and unambiguously remind users that they need to take their medication at the given dose. Notifications require the user to take an action to confirm that the medication has been taken.

Alert system and warnings

The user is notified each time he or she misses a specific dose of medication that he or she has previously configured in the schedule. Effective and persistent alerts force the user to remember to take the medication.

Building positive habits

The easy-to-use functionality of the planner and the view of upcoming medication events make it more user-friendly for patients to start the pharmacotherapy process and develop appropriate habits.

Features of Pill Please

Controlling the quantity of medicines in the medicine cabinet

Stock of medicines

The user has full control over the number of medicines in their home medicine cabinet. By looking at the status table for each medicine on his phone, he does not have to make a special trip to the medicine drawer.

Features of Pill Please

Medical appointments

You won't forget your appointment anymore!

Users who are, as it were, often condemned to sitting in doctors’ surgeries can support their therapy with the use of adding medical appointments to the app’s schedule.

Features of Pill Please

Measurements and statistics

Keep all measurements in one place

The Pill Please app allows measurements of key indicators to be added to the app. Among the measurements that can be added are glucose, temperature, weight, saturation and pulse and blood pressure.

Dedicated app for Android

Android is the most popular system among Poles. This is proven by the research: According to the latest Smart Barometer 2022 report carried out by Digital Care in cooperation with the research company Kantar, the vast majority of devices have the Android system (86 per cent). Only 12 per cent of respondents have iOS on their phone.
