Pushing through the Pandemic!


A solution borne out of the 2019 WHI BARA.1 #HealthcareHackathon is taking shape in spite of the COVID-19 challenge. Weekly Zoom stand-ups and collab workshops, presentations, online user research surveys, operations, a once-in-a-lifetime epidemic – challenges aplenty but passion and energy has seen the team maintain a steady cadence and make great progress.

The team is working on an app designed to empower patients and healthcare providers alike, all while harnessing the benefits of digitization in South Africa’s unique setting. From drafting user journeys, building wire frames, user testing with doctors and prototype-building – the team has pulled together incredibly to work towards creating a tangible product. Blessed with the talents of UX designers, doctors, project managers, creatives, developers.


We at WHI are incredibly lucky to have the pleasure of working with such a motivated and energetic motley crew of individuals. We’re very excited about what the future holds for the team and the app!
