The conventional way of presenting medical data is confusing, and difficult to parse. Thomas Goetz, drawing inspiration from researchers who redesigned drug facts sheets to have the same functionality and readability as nutritional information boxes, had his graphics team redesign lab reports. He introduced their user-friendly, easy to understand, visual lab reports for everyday people in his TED talk (video below).
But we at FloatPoint Media can take this idea further. Not only should the data be easy to understand, but it should also be easily accessible. Integrating Goetz’ concept of user-friendly lab reports into an interactive app can:
- Provide patients with the tools that lead to better health
- Encourage necessary lifestyle habits tailored to their medical needs
- Allow efficient access to the patient’s own health information regardless of where the patient is
mHealth is predicted to be a prominent tool in helping patients self-monitor, leading to better habits, and therefore health.
