FINDOUT DIAGNOSTIC • CASE STUDY

Develop, manufacture and distribute diagnostic self-tests

The attitude towards the defintion of care has changed as we have become increasingly interested and actively seek knowledge of our own health. Self-tests are a great tool for attaining information about one’s own health but do not replace a doctor’s visit.

Client

FindOut Diagnostic is a company with the vision to make health data available on the individual’s terms, through development and distribution of high-quality diagnostic self-tests.

We joined FindOut Diagnostic to build a medical device with the purpose of revolutionizing the way we access health data. We solved this through a mobile application utilizing a built-in algorithm to enable users to perform common lab tests in the comfort of their homes.

Task

The task was to develop a mobile application and a quantitative self-test that measures CRP-value between 0-200 mg/l in 15 minutes.

User journey – users can perform self-test of common traditional lab tests, answer referrals and quickly respond to Healthcare providers, without the need of leaving their homes.

Solution

A medical device enabling easily performed self-test, and communication with digital healthcare providers.

The project had a high focus on regulatory and development processes, as well as system architecture and scalability.

To facilitate these requirements we decided on using a modern tech stack consisting of React Native, TypeScript, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Docker and Kubernetes as environment infrastructure components.
