Purpose and goal
The purpose of the project was to build a prototype including a set of key features that could be tested on different user groups. The aim was to evaluate and validate the features and thereafter develop a version that could be launched in November. The project´s goals have been met and an updated version will be launched for both IOS and Android users in November.
Expected results and effects
The tests have clearly shown that there is momentum around people being able to own, collect, understand and share their health information. We will launch an updated version exploring that momentum. We are convinced that tools developed from a bottom-up perspective by patients and relatives, in symbiosis with doctors are the future. Crucial, will be clear boundaries of what is private and the trade-off between of sharing information, or not doing it. The demand is enormous and not isolated to Sweden. In privately financed healthcare systems, the need appears to be even greater.
Planned approach and implementation
The project was initiated by building smaller prototypes to test people´s willingness to share and collect their health information. Crucial was to gain knowledge about human behavior and which factors that promote, respectively prevent people from doing so. Early on, data security and secure login alternatives emerged as barriers. Therefore, we have focused on these areas and e.g. integrated Bank ID. The tests also showed a demand to integrate vaccines and a health-log into the service. Together with doctors, we have developed these features.
