Mobile computing technologies promise to revolutionize the relationship that people have with their health. Immediate access to, sharing of, and aggregation and analysis of data will put the power of our well being quite literally in the palm of our hand. However, we face the same risks that have plagued personal computing: technology has moved more quickly than people's ability to design successfully for it, threatening to produce a generation of apps that are ineffectual and actually slow adoption of mobile health platforms.
Health Everyware provides a common sense set of mobile design best practices, specifically tailored for the health market. These exemplars of effective mobile design will serve as an open blueprint that arms engineers, visionaries and designers to craft highly usable and desirable health applications for the various, evolving mobile platforms. This will be used to illustrate just how these best practices translate into creating truly remarkable mobile health services.
