One Day…Our Phones Will Care For Us
Jason Oberfest of Mango Health dreams of a day where technology will provide everyone with tools to better manage their health.
PSFK asked creative experts working at the forefront of cultural change what they look forward to as ‘one day’ being the reality that we live in. As part of a series on forecasts, we asked Jason Oberfest, CEO of Mango Health, a startup building mobile applications to help consumers better manage and improve their personal health.
One Day our phones will care for us. We will see the mobile device as a primary channel for care and a main inspiration for improving personal health. Mobile applications, always on and always connected, will become central tools in helping consumers better manage and improve their health. Consumers will increasingly understand how their health compares to the general population, and will be more inspired to improve their lifestyle as a result.
