Distributed health

Health and peopleFound on Cooperation Commons a survey supported by the UK Design Council that sounds appealing: “Open Health: a platform based model of active health”

Here is a short description of the survey by Andrea Saveri (Institute for the future) :

“They address the serious challenges of shifting the health care paradigm from an acute care model focused on a centralized hospital system to a more distributed model that focuses on patients, self care, peer to peer support, and distributed intelligence. They support the idea of the co-creation of health, and discuss how activmobs, or welliemobs, help people manage their health and share healthy practices. This is a really nice example of how the theories and princilpes of cooperation can be applied to very important, practical, and complex challenges.”
