Today our health records are stored on incompatible systems from large conventional
software product vendors. Systems are run by hospitals primarily for their benefit, patients
typically detached from data about their health.
A better approach is to create a new application (app) experience for users, one in which we center their
experience and the relationships they have with others. This patient centered record then supports us in
engaging the vast, distributed medical care ecosystem e.g. payers, pharmacies, providers, and hospital
That patient centered record lives on a new patient identity and messaging platform built today with progressive
technologies like ActivityPub. ActivityPub is an open, W3C standard for integrating applications based on publishing
messages about one’s activities.
