For a period of more than 10 years, we have worked in Healthcare in Africa and beyond. In this experience, we realized that well studied and well developed interventions do not necessarily produce desired impact in poor settings as they do in high income settings. Two major challenges were found to be at the origin of that problem:
More focus on safety and accuracy and less focus on the contextualization and implementation science aspects of interventions,
Poor participation of the beneficiaries in the research agenda and design of solutions
As a solution, we founded in 2019, Stansile as a not-for-profit company with the sole mission to blend design thinking and conventional clinical research in order to support the design and development of tailored healthcare products and services promoting conviviality and convenience. The Stansile idea is supported by the fact that efficacy or safety of interventions is not a guarantee of success if these interventions are not contextualized to bring more convenience and integrability to maximize the value in healthcare.
To achieve this, we developed a unique model (CISDAS Model) that provides a step by step process from context intelligence to mapping of solution ideas and technologies, and then design, adaptive implementation and scaling of interventions through collaborative projects.
WHO WE ARE
We are a multidisciplinary team committed to contributing to research and development that aims at promoting value in healthcare. We do not only care about safety and efficacy of interventions but also how the beneficiaries of interventions can maximize the social value in those interventions.
We agree to the definition that perceived Value (Vp) is a product of quality (Qp) which means safety and efficacy, times Service provided (Sp) divided by the Cost (C) and time (T) required to deliver. If you agree to this concept, you are welcome to partner with us in solving poverty-related problems.
Vp = Value
Qp = Quality
Sp = Service
C = Cost
T = Time
OUR UNIQUE MODEL AND FOCUS
Stansile’s portfolio is built on the in-house developed CISDAS Model. With this models we focus on our mission which is to support healthcare products and services promoting conviviality through combining research and design thinking.
Our strategy uses the human centered design to collect all the information regarding why past and current interventions work or fail in detailed settings in Africa.
We narrow down to specific questions such as what is causing the failure? Who are mostly affected by the failure? What do they share in common? Where and when does this occur?
We then map scattered ideas and technologies that have been tested or used previously or currently and then establish collaborative projects to turn them into adapted interventions. We spend more time understanding possible synergies and rooms for improvement. We make a remix of solutions to build the best synergy and test it back and forth in a specified context. We study the implementation so queenly and adaptively. Briefly we combine, clinical research and implementation science to design thinking.
Currently, our main focus is in diagnostics, digital health and drug resistance
