Health Bonus Account
A Collaborative Platform For Health Awareness

Motivation
- To come up with a design solution that could support persuasive health management

Approach
- Data Collection & Analysis through interviews with stakeholders, subject matter experts, and users

Conclusion
The Health Bonus Account became a collaborative platform to improve health awareness based on existing Patient Health Records. It provides a common platform not only for trainees but also for trainers involved in various preventive health programs, and insurance companies, enabling all involved to work in a symbiotic fashion and thus benefitting from each other's involvement.

Extensions
In the current phase three major target groups have been taken into consideration. In the next phase medical professionals will also be involved, rendering the system more robust.
