A quick way to create HealthCare Proxy and Living Wills
WINNER: 1st Place Hack
This is built for the majority of people that have no advanced planning for medical emergencies. I believe we can help bring down health care costs with simple preparation.
PaperHealth allows anyone to quickly create and share a legally binding Health Care Proxy and non binding 'Living Will'.
I believe the app could be used by both hospitals and by average users. A hospital could use an iPad to collect the information and allow the user to share his intentions with his agent or his family. Conversely an average user could be prepared by having these documents on their phone in case of an emergency.
I plan to release it for free in the coming weeks.
