Personalized Health: Coming to a Screen Near You
As it stands today, we have a massive chronic health crisis affecting our country from the inside out. There is plenty of support for the coming revolution of the health care system but how do we get people to act upon this personal data?
We know that the main underlying drivers of chronic illness is our lifestyle choices and habits. Namely, what we do in-between doctor's visits in our day to day lives. The first step is to accurately capture this data on a personal level. Only then, can we shape and change our own habits to create better health and ultimately a better quality of life.
This discussion is centered around how we should present this personalized data to make it engaging, relevant, and most importantly, actionable. Just like any "action plan" for an enterprise, there should be a similar action plan for our personal wellness development.
Additional Supporting Materials
- Is it possible to make an actionable pathway for each individual based on their own behavior, environment, and genes?
- There is so much data starting to be captured about our lifestyle choices and habits. But is pure data the right thing to show people?
- How can we include health care professionals to become an active part of someones personalized health plan? In other words, how do we get back to the Doctor - Patient relationship on which health was founded upon.
- While passive activity trackers are an incredible tool to capture data, how do we get people to learn from the insights they are providing?
- The best definition of a game is "a problem-solving activity with a playful attitude". How can we get people to come to their own conclusions about improving their health rather than telling them what to do?
