2015: ‘Health Pod’ design; a space that gathers and provides health information about patients in waiting areas. Created for RACGP, Canberra, Australia. Collaboration with HRI, CSIRO, Ochre Health & others. 
Innovation is the force behind success, and every industry can benefit from technological advancement – the health and medical sector is no different. Recently, Ochre Health have supported an innovative new patient empowered POD project that could dramatically improve the quality of GP consultations.As most doctors and healthcare professionals can attest to, the lack of comprehensive databases and incomplete patient profiles are an obstacle to quality consultations. Getting bogged down in the administrative tasks of collecting this valuable patient data can also take time away from the meaningful work of improving patients health and overall wellbeing. In an attempt to address these issues, Dr Paresh Dawda, GP and the Ochre Health ACT Regional Medical Director, is the Chief Investigator in an ingenious project that responds to how patients and modern-day consumers may interact with a doctor’s appointment.
