Project #83: Personalised healthcare data storage

Back

Description:

Three in five American patients (60%) say they rely on their doctors to keep track of their health records. Twentynine percent of patients have access to single self-service portals provided by their healthcare and/ or insurance providers. Another 28% still keep their records in a folder, shoebox, lockbox, drawer or other home-based physical storage method.

The aim of this project is to build a system for people to manage their own health data drawn from both traditional and non-traditional data sources. Traditional sources  include electronic health records, and x-rays and other scans. Non-traditional sources include electronic devices such as fitbits, and environmental data.
