Innovations in Games: Better Health and Health Care Report
On February 1, 2012, the White House Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy hosted a group of leading game designers, researchers, and government officials to explore the potential for games to improve health and health care. That discussion focused on three areas:
- Understanding the current landscape of games and health;
- Identifying areas where game dynamics and health needs could intersect to improve health outcomes in the future;
- Identifying areas where the federal government could play a role in promoting innovations in health games.
This report summarizes the key discussion points from the day.
