The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has launched a contest to redesign the child health record.
The Gates Foundation is seeking creative individuals or teams to re-examine the current child health record and design new ways to accurately track vaccine doses, increase ease of interpretation and use, and incite behavior change to make the record a valued asset for health professionals and families alike.
== Announcing a design challenge held in conjunction with the 2013 Healthcare Experience Design Conference, brought to you by Mad*Pow and the California HealthCare Foundation ==
When surveyed about the main reasons why they had not talked to their loved ones, 41% of Californians said they had too many other things to worry about right now, and 39% said that they or their loved one didn’t want to think about death or dying.
Thanks to everyone for submitting your videos for this year's Student Design Challenge - to develop a vision of “Playful Technology” - made possible with the support of Interaction and Experience Research (IXR) at Intel Labs.
We've received 48 entries in response to this year's brief. Your entries came from countries including United States, Colombia, Israel, Denmark, Italy, India, Australia, Canada, Switzerland and Malaysia.
It's a tough time for students: in the northern hemisphere the
semester is coming to an end, and in the south everyone's on summer
break. We've had a lot of requests to extend the deadline for entries to
the challenge, so today we're announcing that you have until midnight December 9 (Hawaii time) to get your entries in!
Remember: this stage is not about showing us some design you've already done.
