Moving forward, this project will facilitate greater patient participation and comprehension of personal health needs and contextual health factors. By synthesizing patient information and providing a clear and concise report for health care teams, this project fosters faster provider recognition of areas of concern and a greater understanding of the impact of contextual health factors. The project will also connect people with similar health needs and/or contextual factors to allow for a more community based health approach. People are already writing down and tracking their data, whether actively through handwritten notes or passively through technologies like fit bit, apple watch and so on.
