Every year many people get at least one blood test done, but most of them don’t understand what the results mean. In fact, 14% of adults in the U.S have below basic health literacy. These adults are more likely to report their health as poor and lack health insurance (https://health.gov/communication/literacy/quickguide/factsbasic.htm).
To solve this problem, I worked in a team with Lucie Bolé, Simi Rajpal, and Ian Mujkherjee to build HealViz at Cornell Tech, NYC. HealViz is an iOS mobile application that provides users with graphical representations of their blood test result data, as well as definitions of medical terms and actionable insights to use this information to improve their own health.
