KidneyCloud: A Clinically-Codesigned Solution to Support Kidney Services with Assessing Patients for Transplantation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

There is a need for IT systems that support the complex needs of data management in kidney transplantation. The KidneyCloud project aims to inform a transplant-specific digital solution by exploring patient pathways and data journeys. This paper reports on the early prototyping of the KidneyCloud clinician interface using an iterative codesign methodology. User workshops identified that for making clinical decisions and adding patients to the national waiting list transplant teams relied heavily on manual processes to access data across systems and organisations. Based on the requirements gathered, a prototype interface was designed to provide a unified view on the available patient data, which aligned with clinical workflows. Interactive prototype screens allowed users to gain hands-on experience and provide rich real-time feedback. This informed the necessary functionalities of the interface, but also helped us understand the capabilities required of the back-end solution.
