Dubai Health Authority tasked us to create a proof of concept
using Pixelsense technology, multitouch and object recognition
to re-define the patient experience in hospitals.
Each hospital will be equipped with a Pixelsense device
which will show relevant information and allow users to explore practitioners,
find their way around the building or check in for their appointments.
Using object recognition users can see their appointments and check-in automatically
by simply placing their hospital health card on the table.

The experience doesn’t stop at the device but is integrated into a mobile application
that will allow the user to continue where he left and provide directions,
approximate waiting time and entertainment during the wait.
We took the application one step further and created an environment which would
allow the doctor and patient interact, view and explain subjects during
the consultation. This would also allow the doctor to see past medical history and files.
