Impact Through Access

Live With Design team led by Brielle Maxwell and LaTiesha Moore planned a kickoff event with New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) to provide background on why a patient portal for healthcare can save lives and empower New Yorkers through efficient medical record access. Through relevant use cases and sample data we inspired attendees with insights to answer the design challenge. Many creative minds joined us to form teams and make prototypes!

Many of us may not realize the importance of this access until it’s too late. NYeC’s very own Alexandra Cohen knows all too well how communication in healthcare can save lives. Here’s her story on Youtube.

“This is a chance for developers and designers to advance healthcare for all 20 million New Yorkers. A portal of this size and scope has never before existed,” said David Whitlinger, Executive Director of NYeC. “Through our Design Challenge, we hope to inspire applicants to develop truly creative and user-friendly applications. We look forward to seeing all submissions, and eventually building this portal so patients throughout the state have full access to their health records.”
