Eigen aims to change the way we think and interact with our healthcare, from arranging consultations for diagnosis, to managing your medication and appointments. The service design project was shortlisted for a 2016 RSA Design Award and Glendenbrook Enterprise and Innovation award.

Redefining our relationship with healthcare

Technology plays a primary role in our day to day lives. Eigen focuses on how patients can effectively use a digital platform that seamlessly integrates within their own lifestyle and personal needs.

Eigen is a digital platform that works alongside the NHS, building the bridge between patients and doctors, in order to create an easier to use more beneficial healthcare service.

Users can easily arrange and keep track of their appointment schedules, whilst being able to receive medical assistance even when their GP is ‘out of hours’ or unavailable. Remembering to renew and collect prescriptions or simply purchasing medication when you are ill, immobile or have a busy work schedule can often become difficult. Eigen allows you to gather all your medication in one convenient box, delivered right to your doorstep.

Currently there is no way for patients to openly refer back to their medical history, future appointments, procedures, as well as prescription renewal dates.

Eigen provides a platform to manage your prescriptions and personal information as well as keep track of your medical lifestyle. The NHS lose millions of pounds a year due to patient ‘no shows’ and an inefficient appointment process. Being able to quickly and easily plan and respond to your appointments, manage prescriptions as well as being clear of what medication you are taking is a primary role of the system created.
