Honorable Mention: Meet Mary Smith
A Better Health System
The team asks, “What would it look like if patients designed their own medical bills and a system that could help them manage the financial aspects of health?” Their proposal is consumer friendly and easy to understand for somebody with no medical training.
"There were many aspects of this design that were a big step forward. All of the following are built into the bill: the timeline, the progress reporting, the integration of EOB, and payment."
- DESIGN CHALLENGE ADVISORY PANEL
"Good that there are a lot of visual cues. I understand where I’m at during every different point of the process."
- PATIENT FOCUS GROUP
