The Doctor Will Actually See You Now

A common problem faced by patients, is keeping track of their condition and remembering dates and details when asked for information by a physician. I’d pondered creating a personal visual health diary app in the past, something that prompts a patient to input information about their condition, be it hourly, daily, weekly etc. This data could then be presented to the physician in a visual and interactive way.

And I’m not the only one to think this could be useful, Katie McCruddy, a Myasthenia Gravis sufferer, has kept a detailed diary of her condition from the age of 13, but she is also an interactive designer, so when she was faced with explaining her condition and history to a new physician she thought visualisations would help get the details across quickly and effectively.
