What an awesomely big and beautiful idea. I just post an idea that would fit well within yours. Pity I didn't see this first before posting mine. It's around encouraging healthy behavior change through enabling digital triggers (i.e. PJ Fogg's theory) and using just personal medical data & sensor technology. I think it could be improved by some of your thoughts. I would love your feedback. http://www.openideo.com/open/mayo-clinic/ideas/know-yourself.-live-better./
