Health Report Identifies health Needs, Challenges and Strengths

A web-based, consumer-facing mobile application helps health researchers identify patients’ strengths, needs and health challenges. The app is accessed through a browser but is enhanced to run on a mobile device. It is built on knowledge of consumer terminology and the Omaha System of standardized nursing language.
