Check out their project at Imagine Cup People Choice’s Award and support them if you like their project by casting your vote on them. They will heading to New York City represent Malaysia in Imagine Cup 2011 Worldwide Final in Software Design category  this coming 8th – 13th of July 2011.

Q: Tell us about your project?

Health3 is an application designed to improve the health of a cancer patient focusing on three important factors, which are the well-being, medication and emotional support. Cancer patients can get state of the art technological approach towards food monitoring, medication intake monitoring, body vitality tracking, interactive physiotherapy exercises and awareness of nearby essential places to gain help and support. The ability to link up with cancer based NGOs, cancer experts and other patients create an integrated environment whereby it gives the patients emotional support as well as the feeling that they are not alone in fighting this cancer war. With cloud, cancer patients can also gain the benefits of Health3 via a lite version which can be deployed on mobile devices. The lite version also comes handy with an emergency help function that detects the location of cancer patients and alert related parties for immediate medical attention when activated. Health3 also comes with a quick report generation function that gathers data of past activities with Health3 to help doctor analyze cancer patients’ health status for better decision making. Focusing on the ability to customize, Health3 enables each distinct cancer patient to have the most sophisticated health monitoring application in addressing their needs individually. The whole idea of health application has been taken to a brand new level which changes the concept of how health applications are deployed on technological devices to fully maximize the benefits of health application with the aim to lead patients to a healthier lifestyle and increase their survival chances.

Q: Why did you create this project? What inspired you to create this project?

We get inspiration from people around us, even relatives of us who died due to cancer.

Q: Is this your first time joining Imagine Cup? How does it feel like?

It was our second time. First time we did not do well during the local final in 2010 but managed to grab a side award which consists of “Best Implementation of Multipoint” then we continue to learn and managed to win 2011 Imagine Cup Malaysia Final. The journey is simply amazing as we meet a lot of people and learn from them.

Q: How has your participation in the Imagine Cup impacted your life?

Exposure, experience and team work which prepares us to real life challenges and very good experience for us as a platform to be a business partner in the future.

Q: What is your plan on your project after Imagine Cup 2011?

Further enhancement and development will take place and we will deploy our application to National Cancer Society Malaysia and other cancer based NGOs as they already show their interest in us.
