Rethinking the Power and Potential of Personal Health Records
Project HealthDesign is a groundbreaking national program of RWJF’s Pioneer Portfolio, designed to spark innovation in personal health technology. The program advances a vision of personally recorded health information as springboards for action and improved health decision-making.
The most recent Project HealthDesign teams worked with patients and clinicians to examine how "observations of daily living," such as pain, mood, and energy levels can be captured and integrated into clinical care and daily health decision-making.
Project HealthDesign research will help technology developers, policy-makers, patients, and clinicians develop better ways to put patient needs at the center of the nation’s health information technology infrastructure.
