About

The healthcare problem

Ask yourself:    

  • Can you recall past health events in a way that helps you and your provider decide the best care for an unexpected health issue?
  • Do you know what to expect during a wellness visit or doctor's exam, and how you can make the most of both the visit and what you can do afterward to stay healthy?
  • During a medical appointment, do you feel confident about what questions to ask or what decisions you can make?
  • If you were to suddenly get sick with symptoms you've never experienced before, would you trust your care team to know enough about your health history to know how to diagnose and treat you in a quick and responsive manner, without putting you at further health risk?

360me is a transformation in healthcare - it transforms how you manage your care and the care of your children, partner/spouse, parents and anyone else you find yourself responsible for.  It puts you at the center of healthcare decision making, focusing care on you the person and the customer. 

Today’s healthcare is done "at you" or "to you", not with you.  It’s only when you become sick that you become “interesting” to the providers, who end up treating your illness, injury, or condition first - leaving your individual, personalized care as an afterthought. 

We all have busy lives and responsibilities, and we generally manage our health based on episodes such as a new ache or pain or simply feeling “out of sorts” that leads to a doctor visit.  The capabilities in 360me will:

  • help you determine and schedule the right type of appointments you need;
  • provide reminders for the appointments, including an explanation of "what to expect" during your visit;
  • give you a user-friendly tool for capturing all of your important information and notes;
  • allow you to easily reference your health information whenever and wherever you need it; 
  •  Define appropriate care plans specific to your health history, condition and needs; and
  •  Create a continuum of care history focused on you, independent of the healthcare “system” .

 360me will create a different experience and help you take charge by: 

  • Building a greater awareness of your health and what you can do to actively manage it;
  •  Understanding the resources that are available to assist you, with quick access to them;
  • Having greater confidence in making important decisions and taking action; and
  •  Taking control of how you want your care to be managed  

Take a look at the initial 360me design prototype 

How does 360me put me in control?

The 360me platform helps you to advocate for yourself, your spouse, children, parents, etc. through a single, secured repository of health information that is personal, accurate and up-to date.  The information and data you capture within 360me is yours, you control who can access and see your information.  While 360me will help you store, organize and give intelligence to your health information, we will never share your personal data with anyone without your explicit permission.

360me does not replace the knowledge or expertise of your doctor, specialist or pharmacist. It will help you bring to the relationship information that is personal, accurate and about you:

Past: Your health and healthcare history. What has occurred in your past can affect your future. 

Present: Confidence in what you can do to manage your health today, both on your own and in what you and your provider can do together to more effectively address incidents.  

Future: None of us can see into the future. The more you use 360me to help manage all of your health needs, the more it gives you the ability to identify patterns, over time, that no current healthcare solution provides.    

What makes 360me different/special?

 Nearly all healthcare applications today are focused on what the provider can do or on a specific aspect of health (diabetes, dieting, or high blood pressure). While they strive to make your experience more personal, they continue to be focused on the “health issue” versus the individual.  Your doctor is guided by protocols, and the less information they have about you, the more generic the protocol used for determining your care. 

We will change all of that. We want healthcare to truly be about you and how you want to be treated, not just about how to treat the symptom, condition or disease. 

360me will put into your hands the opportunity to directly own your health profile, eliminating the need to access a variety of sources where your information is currently scattered. While those resources remain to supplement your whole experience and your providers’ ability to help with your care, you will own everything you need to become the driver of your own healthcare.   

Who is behind 360me?

360me came to life through a series of conversations trying to answer these questions: “What can we do to help fix this problem with the healthcare system?” and more importantly, “If healthcare exists to care for people, then why aren’t we more engaged with the care of our health?” and “What can we do to help everyone become more engaged – and even own the care of their health?”

Those conversations led to the realization that connecting with our own health is difficult to navigate at best and not at all a positive experience at worst. We believe that much of this is because the “healthcare experience” is really focused on the payer and the provider, neither of which is us. When our health information is stored all over the healthcare system and our care experience is really more about how the provider can better treat their patients, how we play a major role isn’t even defined. And this is all about us!

I spoke with more than 50 individuals and professionals who care about the future of our healthcare that led us to where we are today. Many come from the healthcare industry, wanting to delivery care to everyone in a way that makes each of us the center of our own health. Others came from technology, talking about how it can help “democratize” our ability to interact with our own healthcare. Together, we helped form the idea that is 360me.

So while, this effort is being led by a small band of volunteer entrepreneurs, focused on moving us to the next phase, 360me is really built on the shoulders of many who want to see a different future for healthcare and its most important customer – you.

With your help, we will take our existing design prototype to develop and deliver the first generation 360me app, focused on helping new parents better understand and become more confident in taking charge of their infant's health and wellness care.  After that, we will look to expand 360me's capabilities to help all of us take control of our healthcare.  

Let’s become healthcare owners instead of simply patients! 

We all have a "360me story" to share, and we would love to hear yours, too.  Please share your experiences with us.  If this solution is truly to be about us, your stories will inform future iterations of the 360me platform!

Risks and challenges

Our primary challenge (and opportunity) is obtaining funding to build the first generation 360me app, and to find really strong technology talent to help develop the capabilities to match each individual's personal health information to the vast array of healthcare information and protocols available. Our goal is to create an experience that is specific to each individual, with a focus of how to get the best care for our health from the perspective of the person rather than the healthcare system. If we are successful in doing this, that would be the start of a healthcare revolution that is about "me"!
