Patricia Flatley Brennan Discusses Project HealthDesign at TEDMED

Nov 19, 2010, 1:07 AM, Posted by RWJF Blog Team

We had the good fortune of catching-up with Project HealthDesign Director Patricia Flatley Brennan while at TEDMED this year. In this video Q&A, Patti discusses how Project HealthDesign is redefining the way we fundamentally perceive Personal Health Records (PHRs), away from a repository for health information and towards a “platform for action.” This includes enabling patients to track their “Observations of Daily Living” (ODLs) to better understand the state of their health and create an impetus to action.

Check out our interview with Patti and let us know your thoughts on ODLs and the work Project HealthDesign is doing.
