Lagom

Lagom considers the emotional journey of cancer patients in 2030 and how it can contribute to collective intelligence to improve the overall cancer experience. Letting users record their response to medical intervention on a daily basis which is then relayed back to their designated medical team. This is to allow for a tailored response to their treatment while feeding in to a larger bank of research to reshape the cancer landscape for future patients. It aims to create a more empathetic system which considers more than just physical recovery but also the emotional burden patients may be faced with.

The current patient system for those going through cancer treatment is one which features a lot of jargon and mundane questionnaires. Often the methods used to understanding a persons journey are a basic set of questions focused primarily on the persons physical well-being, with little to no emotional consideration. Lagom’s purpose is to consider physical and mental health in tandem to encourage a more positive and reflective experience.

Data Output

User's inputs are relayed in a visual timeline to non-verbally convey a patient's response to treatment- intended to act as a catalyst for conversation between both professionals and patients.

Developing Lagom

Due to the speculated increase in digital interaction, a main focus for Lagom was to be a very tactile ritual that users physically interact with. This led the projects focus to be on how this input device would function and slot in to a users daily routine.

Artificial intelligence's role

With a system that translates physical inputs to a digital output- artificial intelligence can facilitate this transition. Through development contemplating how artificial intelligence could be implemented as a means of positively contributing was crucial, by identifying patterns, flagging contradictory advice and analysing data.

System input and output

Lagom's multilayered system comprises of both physical and digital interfaces- to help further conversations between patients and practitioners. By displaying a patients emotional response alongside physical intervention allows the system to recognise trends, alert to potential issues and advise on tailored solutions for patients while feeding back to a bigger bank of information.
