The right so­lu­tion, quickly

Speed and clar­ity are key when in­tro­duc­ing a new dig­i­tal strat­egy but it’s not al­ways easy to meet both those ob­jec­tives in the fre­netic, ever-chang­ing dig­i­tal space. DB Re­sults has de­vel­oped a way to ef­fi­ciently re­spond to and cre­ate dig­i­tal in­no­va­tions for your busi­ness: the 3plus3 ap­proach.

In the first three weeks of work­ing with you, they cap­ture your vi­sion and de­fine how it can be trans­lated into a prac­ti­cal plan. Be­fore they be­gin work on the strat­egy, the team cre­ates a dig­i­tal sto­ry­board so you can see the so­lu­tion be­fore in­vest­ing in the build.

Within the next three months, DB Re­sults de­liv­ers your so­lu­tion so you can im­prove your com­pet­i­tive­ness, in­crease your bot­tom line and con­tinue your dig­i­tal jour­ney. That means you can be the dis­rup­tor, rather than the dis­rupted, by get­ting your so­lu­tion to mar­ket first.

Tech­nol­ogy mak­ing a dif­fer­ence

New soft­ware de­signed and cre­ated by DB Re­sults us­ing the 3plus3 method­ol­ogy is help­ing to im­prove health out­comes. The HealthELink sys­tem is part of a study run by a team of gas­troen­terol­o­gists from the Royal Ade­laide, Royal Dar­win and Royal Mel­bourne hos­pi­tals that aims to im­prove treat­ment rates of hepatitis C.

It’s es­ti­mated that about 230,000 Aus­tralians are liv­ing with this dis­ease that af­fects the liver. While it’s treat­able, there are many bar­ri­ers for both doc­tors and pa­tients. There’s of­ten a stigma at­tached to the virus that stops peo­ple from at­tend­ing hepatitis C clin­ics. And GPs can of­ten lack con­fi­dence in pre­scrib­ing new drug treat­ments, given they see so few pa­tients with the virus each year.

The team be­lieves the HealthELink sys­tem will fos­ter GP con­fi­dence and doc­tor-pa­tient com­mu­ni­ca­tion sur­round­ing the dis­ease. It con­nects pa­tients with spe­cial­ists via a net­work of en­gaged and su­per­vised GPs. Doc­tors en­ter a pa­tient’s de­tails into the soft­ware, which gen­er­ates a treat­ment plan. They can then re­fer this plan over the sys­tem to a hepatitis team, in­clud­ing spe­cial­ist nurses.

Pa­tients also have ac­cess to the in­ter­face, with the abil­ity to view their treat­ment plan, re­ceive re­minders for scripts and blood tests and ask ques­tions.

HealthELink is just one ex­am­ple of how the right dig­i­tal in­no­va­tion can have a pos­i­tive im­pact on the wider com­mu­nity.
