About this project

The problem we solve:
Doctors provide patients with health plans that may include certain diet, exercise, and/or healthy habits to reduce health problems. However, patients may fall from the plan due to lack of motivation or forgetfulness, among other factors.
About our solution:
The purpose of the app is to remind patients to keep a positive attitude while helping to create and maintain healthy habits. Customized daily positive reminders are generated and displayed to patients to maintain their health and are particularly directed towards their individual health problems.
Progress to date: The project has been thought through to completion, including plans to survey the impact the app will have on patients.
