AccuVax® Vaccine Management System
MDEA Gold Medal
2014 GOOD DESIGN
Most physicians don’t stock vaccines in their offices today because it’s difficult and expensive to properly store and handle vaccines to meet safety guidelines and ensure quality. This means they can’t help protect their patients and community from vaccine-preventable diseases — at the time that is most convenient — when their patients are in their office.
Vaccines need to have very specific temperature controlled environments. Some types require refrigeration, and other types need to be kept frozen. The client wanted to create a compact solution that could handle different temperature storage needs. There were also HIPAA regulations and security requirements that needed to be met.
TruMed products are purpose-built to reduce cost and improve outcomes within healthcare by creating innovative, efficient, effective point-of-care supply management systems.
TruMed asked DDSTUDIO to help create a design that fit into the flow of the physician’s practices: both in the flow and in the esthetic. They needed a compact form factor that didn’t take up too much space and didn’t require a lot of effort to maintain. It also needed to meet relevant regulatory compliance requirements.
