INTROI set out to find:- something useful.- something relevant make the everyday a little easier-something that people would want to use
EXPLORATION manual input of data track things in our life one extra step = tedious, “I’ll remember, it’s important to me” we become our own enemy, with the devices we use as our accomplice.
INSIGHTI found two things in life that suck:1 ) reminder apps that are too annoying to set on a consistent basis2 ) people constantly forgetting to stay on top of their health
CHALLENGETaking two things which require consistency, to make: reminder apps = more efficient people = less forgetful
SOLUTIONIn order to do this:the reminder app must “know” you & your environment well enough to achieveefficiency& in the case of taking medication:the reminder app must “know” how you take your meds/vitimans/supplements
Utility An app that understands you and your health, and works hard to “buzz” you reminders that support you in staying as healthy as you could and should be.
HOW It WORKS Upon first use, input personal preferences, including: -Name, Age, Height, Weight, Gender (as you scan more, Beehealthy will match to your personal profile for verification purposes) -Primary pharmacy/drug store of choice -Your homebase (“current location”) -Your city & state - allergy information
HOW It WORKS Using your mobile device’s camera, Beehealthy scans the barcode of the medication/vitamin/supplement you want to start taking.
HOW It WORKS Scan accesses database, and automatically registers all necessary data and sets all the”buzz” reminders in order to efficiently alert a Beehealthy user. A “buzz” is a friendly push notification aimed at reminding you about all the items you have scanned into your Beahealthy app. Based on your personal preferences & database information, your mobile device will alert you in appropriate intervals with a “buzz”.
HOW It WORKS A “buzz” will say things like: - “time to take your ________ pill” - “time to call your pharmacy for a refill” - “there are 9 days until you are out of ______ pills” more to “buzz” about for medication: -expiration date notice -suggested intake reminder (“swallow with water”, “remember to eat before you take ______ pill”) -instant access to pharmacy contact info, perscription info, & location of nearest pick-up
HOW It WORKS “buzz” settings based on suggested daily dosage but can be adjusted in personal preferences upon scanning, Beehealthy will ask: -the location of the place you most frequently work out - “buzz” will appear when you return from the gym
ADDitional Features WORKS WITH YOUR DAY Beahealthy is able to access the alarms you have already set in your clock app on your mobile device. This will allow Beahealthy to know when you wake up and when you go to sleep, and schedule each “buzz” based on the time that you start your day.
ADDitional Features “TRACKING YOU AROUND TOWN” With geo-location tracking, Beehealthy can increase it’s “buzz” efficiency by: -recognizing when you leave “home base” and reminding you to take your MVS with you -alerting when you are close to your to pharmacy, telling you to pick up a prescription refill -alerting when your MVS’s are on sale -knowing you are close to an MVS expiring/running out, and alerting you when near vendor
ADDitional Features STATUS UPDATE TRACKER CHECK-IN TRACKERAllows for Beehealthy to monitor key words like By connecting to FourSquare, Beehealthy can track“lunch” and “dinner” so it can send you a buzz, where you are and “buzz” you better.reminding you to take your MVS. If you check into a place that serves food or drinksBeing reminded that one extra time will help make within an hour of your next MVS “buzz”, Beehealthyremembering even easier. will suggest to take it now if the suggested intake is durning a meal time.
WHY THIS WORKS-Tracking is already being done in many ways in our devices.-Tracking health this way is a trend that is gaining popularity.-Makes effiecient use of “location-based reminder” technology.-Frequent reminders and connections to how the users lives their life (besides the fact that they want to take something for their health) makes more personal
What’s Next-introduction to the masses via mobile device app stores-advertising in doctors offices and pharmacies-more opportunities for social media connections in the future
