WHAT IS YOUR STARTUP AND WHO IS THE TARGET MARKET?
MEMORehab is an online platform that provides allied health professionals (neuropsychologists, occupational therapists, psychologists, speech pathologists) with tools to deliver intervention programs to neurological patients online.
Our platform supports both patients and clinicians through the rehabilitation journey through a mix of telehealth to connect patients and clinicians (either in a group or individually as part of the intervention program) each week, patient management tools for clinicians to organise patients, data analytics for clinicians to review patient progress, computerized exercises for patients to practice skills they learn in the intervention, educational content so patients can learn about their condition and how to manage it, and inbuilt reminders to help patients attend to tasks.
How have you engaged end-users in the development of MEMORehab?
We began our journey by conducting a user experience study interviewing clinicians who had run intervention programs for patients suffering from memory related issues as a result of neurological injury.
From this study, we designed a platform for clinicians to deliver rehabilitation and continued conducting research with clinicians to further develop the platform and understand what tools they needed to run these sorts of interventions in a digital format.
Since then we have engaged both clinicians and patients in user studies and academic research to understand the impact and value of our product. We aim to continue working collaboratively with clinicians and patients to improve our platform.
Can you share some success stories or accomplishments that you’ve achieved since launching?
Since launching in February, we have onboarded multiple major hospitals and health districts across the country, in addition to conducting research with major universities and hospitals.
Since our launch, we have had multiple groups of patients use our platform successfully and really enjoy their experience. We are told that patients really engage with the program and really look forward to using MEMORehab each week and meeting with their group using our teleconferencing system, in addition to completing exercises and watching educational content.
Clinicians have told us they really enjoy the system and find it streamlined and easy to use.
What sets your startup apart from competitors?
We are the only service that offers solutions for both patients and clinicians.
Other systems either offer clinicians tools to deliver service online, or offer patients tools to improve their functioning. We offer both and provide clinicians with data about how their patients are engaging with the intervention process.
