My Health Story Timeline
My Health Story Timeline is a project that I began in collaboration with a health platform called Zamplo. I began working for Zamplo as a co-op student in September 2021 and was later transitioned to a permanent position.
The objective of this project began as a method of summarizing health information within one’s profile. Along the way, it became evident that many people would value and benefit from a chronological timeline of important health events.
While the platform already allows for daily symptom tracking through scaled measurements, this method would not capture the details surrounding an event.
Through interviews, it was discovered that people were creating their own detailed timelines to pass off to medical professionals. These timelines included details of appointments, documentation, symptom onset and triggers, injuries, medications, and more.
The timeline became the focus of this project, creating a more efficient way for people to build and organize their health stories.
The current version of this feature allows for each event card to include a category, date, detailed notes, attachments, and tags. Information can be compiled, organized, and extracted in full, or as a customized timeline by choosing specific events to be compiled and extracted.
The Health Story Timeline remains in the testing phase at this time but is set to be developed and released in the next few months.
