Undergraduate Thesis

App Design

My undergraduate design thesis centered on the electronic health record (EHR). I set out planning to redesign it in a simple, user-friendly, mildly interactive fashion. As I continued researching, however, i found that many people had already accomplished this in beautiful ways. Driven by an egotistical desire to set myself apart, I decided to take it a step further by re-imagining the EHR as an iPad app- specifically, a game populated by nutty Victorian-era characters. The reasoning behind this craziness: Many of us refuse to think about our health because we find it alternately boring and terrifying. By refusing to take itself too seriously, the game makes health-consciousness approachable and fun.
