Open Health Project

An open source software tool to help at-risk patients (homeless, uninsured, impoverished) keep track of their medical paperwork and find the help they need. On the clinical side, doctors and other health professionals can refer patients to community health organizations. For example, a patient with diabetes can be referred to a healthy eating and lifestyle community organization.

Fresquiticos

Given that consumers are not logical people, it is difficult to persuade them to stop drinking sodas. Therefore, I sought out to create the first healthy sodas sweetened only with natural ingredients from fruit. This means that I have reinvented sodas with organic ingredients and traditional Costa Rican flavors, and maintained the tingling sensation that people seek in Fresquiticos.
