Description of the Service

The Service allows visitors of the website to provide ideas to improve health and / or care of people with a medical condition or caregivers by filling in a form asking to what medical condition the idea applies, to what problem the idea offers a solution and a description of the solution to the problem. The ideas that are posted can be rated (liked) by other visitors, without the possibility to comment on them. All the ideas that are posted will be analyzed to understand what kind of challenges patients and caregivers face in their patient/caregiver journey. This will be used to inspire participants from a hackathon to work on certain problems or ideas from patients. It cannot be guaranteed that all ideas that are posted will be handled during the hackathon.
