Optimal health, peak performance - Developing the Personal Health Record

We're working on a new company idea and would like your input.

Our premise; everyone should have a digital copy of their "personal health record". This could be as simple as a "Dropbox for your data" with basic health history (past conditions, allergies, surgeries, treatments,) and a copy of your past test results, easily referenced, (web, phone…) and shareable if you choose. It will evolve to include more dynamic connections to data (e.g. activity monitors (Fitbit)) and further to include everything from diet, sleep, emotional health… In a fully imagined case, the system would seamlessly collect and organize your data, present it in ways that helps you deeply understand your own health and make better decisions, often in collaboration with your healthcare providers.

We plan to start by making it simple and elegant to get a copy of your records from your doctor(s), organize them and provide a simple view on your phone. This is the MVP.

We are a team of successful entrepreneurs, software developers, doctors and athletes who believe the world will be a better place if everyone can better understand themselves and take a more active role in living with "optimal health and peak performance".

In support of this effort, we have created a short survey to collect data. We would appreciate your input and look forward to sharing progress as we move forward. Thank you in advance for your help.

Best,

    Serious health conditions?

    As we consider the solution, we think there will be even higher value for people who've had serious health issues. These situations often require lots of information sharing and discovery of causation and correlation of treatments and providers, yet many patients and families struggle to organize the data. We are trying to help this situation.

    Health data tracking

    The world is exploding with ways to track more about your own health. The solutions will only increase in number, functionality, fidelity and ability to collect data in a passive way. This is exciting for our health, but for many, getting the data into one place and correlating it can be very challenging. We aim to solve this problem too.
    Fitbit or other activity monitor
    MapMyRun, Strava or other workout tracker
    MyFitnessPal or other meal tracker
    SleepTime or other sleep tracker
    Everymove or other health aggregation service
    InsideTracker or other blood monitoring solution
    Glucose monitor
    Withings or other connected scale
    23andme or other DNA testing services
