CARDIAC: Conversational Agent for Robust Dialogue Interaction and Care
Starting in 2006, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation sponsored Project HealthDesign, an interdisciplinary program whose goal was to
spark innovation in personal health technology. The program advances a vision of personal health records (PHRs) as springboards for action and improved health decision-making. The emphasis was on patient-centered design of solutions to healthcare problems using the then-new notion of personal health records (PHRs) together with the web and mobile technologies that were on their way to being ubiquitous.
