Using the Internet of things to improve health.

The HouseCall data model created a one-stop dashboard for users while sharing relevant data with healthcare and inusrance professionals.
The HouseCall brand was designed to be reminiscent of neon pharmacy signs and enployed an icon library of single-line illustrations that could easily vary by color as needed by dashboard reporting.
The HouseCall dashboard used large, color-coded, single-line illustrations and large typography to communicate the user's current health state. The result is a simple at-a-glance UI that works well for seniors and healthcare professionals, alike.
Detail pages show past and projected trends based on user history and habits.
HouseCall was designed to work on a variety of tablets in the senior's home and on the go.
HouseCall also encouraged real-time communication with helath professionals who had access to the user's real-time data.
