Personalized Health: Coming to a Screen Near You

#sxsw #Mhealth

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.
