I've been invited to give feedback to all Parsons students, regarding your thesis projects.
MedX is a very interesting solution that aligns with the long-proposed notion of a "paperless" society. It also allows for seamless integration of data at a moment's notice, in life or death scenarios. How do you propose data gets collected and knitted together into a database, however? I wonder if there are larger issues surrounding this you need to invite into the design solution...like, say, getting health care providers and insurers talking to each other and sharing information?
In this regard, starting in America might very well be more challenging than beginning elsewhere, like Africa or Brazil or India. Look into it, in terms of prototyping the concept. (You've suggested Africa, which is great.)
Provide a little more information about HOW this system will actually work, and how it needs to change depending on culture, context, etc. In theory, it's brilliant. Thanks!
