The StrategyIn the US chronic disease accounts for 70% of deaths and 75% ofhealth spending*. Prevention is the best way to solve thisproblem.AHRQ and ODPHP provide recommendations but most peopledo not access and adhere to them. There is “too much info” andmost of us have literacy and/or health literacy limitations.Prevention and health promotion should be straightforward,almost as simple as your automotive maintenance schedule.Preventify.me is simple, engaging, and 100% mobile. * Source: http://www.rwjf.org/en/topics/rwjf-topic-areas/prevention.html
Features & BenefitsAccess! Mobile web site works with any smartphone model. Alternative interface uses text messaging, andautomated voice calls can be added. All content in English and Spanish.More than just reminders: interactive SMS text messaging includes decision-tree branching conversations tocollect data. These are initiated according to any frequency -- daily, fortnightly, biannually, etc.The MyHealthfinder tailored recommendations (by age, gender, pregnancy status) are automatically applied tofamily members which can then be tracked and/or reminded over time.The full library of Healthfinder articles (in both languages) is available for browsing, searching, starring as afavorite, and sharing by email, text, or (coming soon) Twitter and Facebook.Tasks can be from the recommendation list or created custom. They can be shared (the same 4 channels asabove) or exported to calendar (iCal .ics format which is standard). Coming soon, they can exported to HL7CDA which can be imported to an EHR or a PHR including Microsoft HealthVault.Other relevant information and news is aggregated and available in mobile-optimized format right within theapp. The nation-wide HRSA list of clinics is included in geographic format.

The app is powered by jQuery Mobile, Ruby on Rails, MongoDB, Nginx, and Twilio. It ishosted in the cloud using Amazon Web Services (EC2).
How It WorksLogin with Facebook to preload a list of loved ones including name, gender, and age.

Co-Design ProcessThere were several sources of iterative co-design: testers on Health Tech Hatch posted 7 comments/reports.Other “patient” friends of friends answered our questionnaire informally after piloting the early prototype. Wealso presented a prototype during a class at Penn Nursing for additional feedback.Several of the current features - now implemented - were based on user input: Creating an account to login rather than using Facebook Adding non-Facebook people to your circle, even if you logged in with Facebook Creating your own actions rather than just choosing recommendations Twitter account login Full bilingualism Voting on the domain name preventify.me vs. healthfind.meSome of the future development ideas were also based on feedback. Adding links to online resources with userstar-rating and reviewing. Matrix and timeline style overviews of all recommendations, even across age groups.Progress meters, checkmarks, and or other gamification component, especially with social aspect.
