Why innovation in healthcare will come from the patients

After suffering from anorexia I decided to work on a solution to support other young people who have to deal with the same challenge. I started a non-profit initiative, Jourvie, in Berlin. Our team of four staff are developing a smartphone app for people affected by eating disorders.

The app supports the patients during the recovery process and provides them with a food journal, mood diary, motivation and coping tactics — all of which are essential parts of the treatment.
