As a distributed emergency waiting room, The MKiosk, proposes to bring a new scale to our health system. This diagnostic kiosk adopts the logic of the quarter-hour city by being local and complimentary to hospitals and the existing network of GPs and allied health in cities.
Providing easier access means taking a preventive approach. The MKiosk reduces the effort involved in entering the health care system by making it local and accessible. Prevention is also aimed at those who “don’t want to clog up” the hospitals and are unaware of the warning signs of serious health problems. Lowering the threshold for access to medicine through the Health Kiosks means distributing the hospital infrastructure throughout the city.
