Digital Interventions in Digital Auscultations
“One person dies of a heart attack every 33 seconds in India, reveals a top Cardiologist”
To design a easy - usable product for primary care physicians that helps them analyse heart problems & solve the risk of heart disease at an early stage.
So what is Auscultation?
The action of listening to sounds from the heart, lungs, or other organs, typically with a stethoscope, as a part of medical diagnosis.
For my primary research, I visited a couple of clinics in Kolar and discussed with a few Cardiologists regarding the problems and the possible area of interventions
and a little bit of secondary research from news articles
Studying Existing Products

General Care Physician
She is 28 years old and works at Malur
"I’m unable to take a second opinion on my decisions regarding heart murmurs”
1. Expert opinion from a remote specialist or from a local clinical decision support system
2. Acoustic information is also inconsistent across the course of an examination, owing to natural variation and noise.
3. Maintaining Records
Considering a Parallel Product
The SmartWatch is a considerable example and can be analyzed using the Gartner's hype cycle
Its maturity, adoption, and social application can be tracked using this cycle and I wanted to apply this kind of an interface towards the unused area of auscultation
Parallel Product Integration
Thus upon integrating a Digital Interface on the existing stethoscope
I was able to provide calculations and analysis for the general care physicians
