Health Design Challenge

A cross disciplinary design team at gravitytank was awarded Best Overall Design in the Health Design Challenge. The national design contest called for a redesign of the Blue Button medical record first implemented by Department of Veteran Affairs as a text-only record. Inspired by the insight that medical records are focused on serving doctors and not patients, the gravitytank team designed a visual record that helps people understand their bodies and empower them to better control their own health. You can download a PDF of the winning design at the contest site.

Health Design Challenge was sponsored by the government and others like the California Healthcare Foundation, Rock Health and lean startup advocates, luxr.
