Visit the Pioneering Ideas blog today for an update about Project HealthDesign, titled “Noodles of ODLs.” Read an excerpt below then visit the original post to read the rest and watch video updates from Steve Downs, Patricia Flatley Brennan and Anind Dey.
“Patients participating in Project HealthDesign studies are using technology to track personally meaningful information about their daily feelings, thoughts, moods and behaviors — or observations of daily living (ODLs) — and sharing this information with providers. Currently, nearly all of our project teams are beginning the testing phase, recruiting patients and providers to participate in the studies. Part of their task is to figure out which ODLs are relevant to share; another job is to share them in ways that are meaningful to all involved.”
