Symptomatic Alleviation

Innovations relieve both expected and unexpected consequences of illness

Trend - While short and long-term illnesses often come with expected consequences such as grief and lifestyle interruptions, initiatives in the medical field are focusing on alleviating some of the less anticipated consequences of being hospitalized – focusing on enhanced accessibility, emphasizing routine, and predictive care.

Insight - As access to universal healthcare continues to be a struggle, particularly in North America, consumers are seeking out services and solutions that provide a more all-encompassing approach. Thus any added support and alleviation of stresses or anxiety associated with healthcare visits helps ease the burden on both patient and provider.
Workshop Question - What are some of the less anticipated problems that your brand or its customers face? How can your brand relieve these problems with comprehensive solutions?
