The United States is getting more diverse. Personalized and customized healthcare services are getting more popular. Moreover, it is expected that individuals will be more required to manage their own health.
Genetic tests are getting more popular and cheaper. In 2020. The genetic tests would become more financially and very useful for diverse families’ health promotion and disease prevention in the near future.
On average, American people think their families are the most important thing in their lives. For example, 40% of survey participants said that family influences healthcare decision and 60% of them said that they want to spend their free time with their families.
The concept platform is how the Health Archive works. We focused on providing the three types of design approach in the whole process. In the beginning step, the Health Archive collects, organizes, and analyzes data for accurate and effective health promotion and prevention. Then, Health Archive suggests family plans which can be customized. Users start role-playing and get incentives and compensation, based on what they have done.
Through credit card companies and supermarkets, Health Archive can get users’ lifestyle information. Family health information, such as users’ family health history and DNA data, can be collected with Ancestry Health and Ancestry DNA. Social media will be helpful to motivate users to participate in activities actively, and incentives from health insurance companies and supermarkets will be good for motivation.
