You’re Invited — Share Your Ideas for Telling the Total Health Story

This post is part of a campaign to invite feedback and ideas that will help inform the next generation of content for exhibits at the Center for Total Health.

The story of health care is ever changing.  And today, we invite you to help us determine how we tell that story at the Center for Total Health.

As we keep pace with the changing times and update the exhibits at our center, we’d like your assistance with designing the most compelling, interactive content.  Over the next four blog posts, we’ll ask for your feedback on how to tell particular aspects of our story on Total Health.  We’ll start with the largest display at the center, our marquee interactive video wall that currently features the benefits of walking.  If you haven’t experienced the wall in person, a picture of the current content is below.

Our question for you is this:  If you were to design an interactive wall on the topic of Total Health, what would it look like?  A couple of ideas are included below, but don’t let that limit you.  Build on the ideas you see and hear from others.  Your suggestions may inspire how we design the next generation of content.

While there is no single definition of Total Health. one way we like to think of it is as the achievement of good health – and not just health care – for all. To help get you started, we’ve included a couple of ideas from our staff.  Feel free to add to these or propose new concepts.

  1. I’d love to see the board be a more integral part of the experience that is visiting KP CTH. A few off-the-cuff ideas;
    – Include transit screen-like functionality … #activetransportation anyone? 🙂
    – Allow presenters or break-out session facilitators to use the board as both a projector and/or a white board
    – Show social media interactions with KP/the #thrive hashtag in real time. This could encourage people to commit to doing something healthy each week and sharing it with the world. Others’ commitments may encourage others to join in.
    – Regardless, make the board more inviting and newbie friendly. Even as a techie, I was at first hesitant to come and interact with it. Maybe this means having some low-tech instructions like an explanation placard you would see in a traditional museum

    Y’all know this but I am a huge fan of what you’re doing at KP CTH so feel free to reach out if I can help tell the total health story.
