Personal health management assistance focusing on management of heart conditions

This project will develop single point of contact that is intuitive to use for heart failure patients to self-monitor health information (draws analogy to universal remote control for home electronics). The project aims to use natural language processing to aid in data collection and interact with heart failure patients intelligently. In phase two, a prototype will be developed and tested. From this they hope to revise design requirements to further refine the technology.
