Ambient Health

In response to the 2012 Microsoft Design Expo theme: “Information In My World,” Ambient Health is the product of a quarter-long engagement in which students were asked to form interdisciplinary teams, consider real human needs, and respond with a user experience prototype and presentation that communicates their design solution.

An exercise in Service Design, at the heart of Ambient Health is a cloud-based application that bridges the gap between doctors, patients, clinical records, and personal contextual data. Ambient Health promotes preventative healthcare while bringing to our current system of curative healthcare all of the benefits of the information age.

Special thanks to the doctors, nurses, researchers and everybody else that generously contributed their time, expertise, experience and point of view.
