Built in message from phone

Just as you get a weekly reminder on your phone informing you of your screen time the phone recognizes how your behaviour changes over time - indicating that you should visit your physician. This should be built into the software of the phone and not through an app meaning that also those in denial get this info without searching for it.

    Certainly. Will Apple or Samsung be the evaluator of your data? If they find a suspicious behavior change - how do they approach you with it? If you ignore the encouragement - like if you are in denial - how can you reach them anyhow and get them to seek medical help?

    Awesome! what kind of behavior does it track?

    I think this has to be backed up by a medical center or a medical study that adds different patterns or indicators to measure if it's something more behavioural or something more awareness that the health care app would indicate. It would need to be targeted to certain ages perhaps as premeditative measure to decrease risk of dementia or alzheimer and act on possible treatment. I say some certain age group as some older group are not into apps or devices so much, so it has to work perhaps for nurses, helpers or family members that are starting to be aware of risks in families treating a person perhaps with such indications.

    Totally agree with you Mauricio, though penetration of smart phone is increasing at a rapid speed globally, there is still an elder generation that are not as digitally fluent/active. How would we best reach this group? But if we did consider a smart phone solution, integrated in the Apple/Samsung software or as an application, I think Björn's questions are super relevant. How are you approached and does it matter if you are in denial? And further, what would it track? What behavioral pattern would it look for? I'm thinking if you could take an angle on this great idea and think of it as tech that encourages well being and healthy living at large?! In the case of the screen time data, it's about making us more aware of our (too high) on screen time. What if this app/software could take a stand in "brain health" i.e. the need for resting our fragmented brains from too much screen time/stimuli/busy schedules OR the need fo training our less used brain muscles (memory of words, spelling etc. check out research based Luminosity)? A big cause of stress related diseases, where cognitive impairment often is a result, is the lack of recovery time! Also, in some cases a repetitive one sided type of work is not using the whole capacity of our brain! Maybe we are more open to test something that is about making us more aware of our general brain health than something that is spotting early signs of dementia or Alzheimer's? When software/app would approach us it could talk about memory loss in all it's aspect (it can be stress, lack of vitamines..the whole spectra.), prompting you to see a doctor, if it is a reoccurring pattern, and in a positive way "seize the opportunity to see a doctor, this may be an easy thing to fix!". NEVER ever say "you seem to have early signs of dementia/Alzheimer's - go to a doctor!" In a time of self-optimization this is maybe what people would respond better to? So what elements would such an app/software include?

    Just realized this is pretty close to the idea "Braintrack- prognostic gaming" :) ! But ideas can still take different routes in development! Or this one could be a screening tool for primary care? Possibilities are many! :)
