Prevention support system
It is a matter of fact that our healthcare system does not focus on prevention – quite the contrary, it is more lucrative to treat a disease than to prevent it.
Although it is commonly known that all of us should undergo a preventive checkup from a certain age onwards, no one is really interested whether we do it or not and there is no facility or device that cares.
It would be possible to create an online platform where a person can log in and enter personal data like age, weight, blood pressure, blood glucose and the history of diseases of parents and grandparents.
The system can then calculate the individual chance of developing a specific disease and in order to calculate the probability more exactly, relevant results which emerge during an examination of a physician can be imported into the system.
When you know about the diseases you tend to develop, the system can remind you periodically about the examinations you should undergo in order to prevent them.
Furthermore it would not pose a problem to point out the physicians in your neighborhood you can visit, adjusted on your insurance.
Such a system would support us in the whole process of finding out about our health risks and it would help to avert specific diseases and would therefore lead to a more healthy society.
