Koru UX Design’s Winning Entries at iF Design Awards 2024

1. Point-of-Care Application for CVD in Rural India -Winner in the User Experience Category

This module was designed to help primary healthcare providers in rural India screen, test, and treat cardiovascular disease (CVD) in at-risk patients. 

Cardiovascular disease in rural India is characterized by early age of onset, rapid progression, and high mortality rate, with nearly 62% of all CVD deaths being premature. Screening for conventional risk factors is crucial, but systemic barriers such as a lack of tools and expertise to identify and assess at-risk patients are widespread in rural India. 

The solution is a simple, user-friendly application for frontline healthcare providers that would help them share data from electrocardiographic screenings done in rural regions with specialist providers at the district level. The system leverages India’s mass internet connectivity – cloud computing helps transfer data entered by the PHC in a remote location to a Specialist’s EHR in a few seconds to provide timely treatment and save lives. 

Early detection of CVD is key to improving patients’ long-term health and easing the economic burden on the health system by preventing more serious and costly health complications.

2. A Seamless and Intuitive IVR Automation Interface – Winner in the User Interface Category

IVR systems are indispensable for businesses as they’re widely used to automate and enhance customer interactions. When poorly designed, this very system causes frustration in users and reduces their efficiency in deploying the simplest of workflows. This impacts their operations and ultimately increases customer support requests and a drop in subscription renewals for our client.

Our team designed a flexible, adaptive IVR system with seamless customization that could cater to the needs of varied industries. Its seamless UI displays only the essential options required to deploy the IVR workflow which makes it easy to operate with minimal training & instruction.
