Carecircle – people-powered social network for healthcare to find help, hope and control.
Healthcare social network
Carecircle is the first independent global health platform which combines communities with crowd-based knowledge supported by learning algorithms and scientific data.
Based in Switzerland, it is a platform designed by scientists and technologists, to ensure a safe space where users own and decide how to manage their health data.
Setup by scientists and technologists to help people and their loved ones with health and wellbeing, carecircle is a research-based platform founded by a team of experts with academic backgrounds at institutions such as Cambridge university, Harvard, the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich).
Business Analysis & Tech Advisory
Mobile App Development
Launch and Maintenance
Carecircle reached out to us to help them build the carecircle.org platform, specifically focusing on the frontend development on the web, web mobile and native mobile, but also covering the product design and quality assurance stages of the project.
Full product development
We entered the project having already a kick-start, as a series of advanced wireframes were in place, which we then expanded.
Since the already existing platform was based on a Microsoft Azure architecture, our engineers were tasked with deploying .NET / Azure PaaS skills, as well as developing the frontend of both the web and mobile platform.
We, therefore, started developing the frontend with a multi-disciplinary team, initially working on the responsive web format and subsequently moving to native mobile, taking the product forward as a mobile-first.
A CI/CD pipeline with automated testing was also used so that Agile development best practices could be dispatched. By the beginning of December, we delivered a Minimum Viable Product which was then evolved subsequently based on early adopter user feedback.
The project is now moving forward into the next phase with a significant product pipeline and user numbers are starting to scale rapidly around the world which allows us to continually integrate user feedback.
carecircle enables users to connect with others who have similar conditions, to quickly find answers to health and wellness questions, to diagnose symptoms, to share stories and find treatment options through crowd-sourced knowledge, health tools and access to medical practitioners.
carecircle allows people to take back control of their health and feel that they are never alone in their health journey.

Everything carecircle does is inspired by and will be created by members just like you. The experience of many is a valuable resource for those who are still looking for advice and treatment options.
