Goal

Develop a mobile prototype version of the My Family Health Portrait – a tool from the Surgeon General. The goal of the web-based, My Family Health Portrait tool:

  • Record family health history
  • Learn about your risk for conditions that can run in families
  • Print your family health history to share with family or your health care provider
  • Save your family health history so you can update it over time

Summary + Outcome

The goal of the web-based tool was to encourage the collection and recording of family health history data. IIU completed both low and high fidelity mockups of a mobile version of the app; partial coding was completed on a functional mobile prototype for iOS devices (e.g., iPhone).
