May 31, 2014          

Episode Summary

In this episode of the Digital Life, we discuss the Health Axioms card deck and designing for behavior change, with Involution Studios Creative Director, Juhan Sonin.

The Health Axioms are 32 recommendations that put you in touch with habits to improve your health, life, and well-being. The sometimes surprising, always practical axioms nudge you toward the healthiest life possible. These are one small part of a global movement to shift the health care system to one of: non-invasive personal diagnostics, highly specialized clinicians that work closely with patients and their families, and self-monitoring, self-empowered patients. Getting there is equal parts smart technology, healthcare reform, and everyday common sense.
