The Team

Findcare.org was conceived by a group of students from the University of Michigan Medical School and now encompasses contributions from students at the Schools of Information, Engineering & Computer Science, Social Work, Public Health, Pharmacy, and Business.

My role

I am the lead designer and mentor for findcare.org and its accompanying user experience.

 
 

Overview

 

15,000 free and sliding-scale clinics which provide healthcare to uninsured people.

1 in 6 people in the United States are uninsured U.S. Census Bureau

30,000,000 will still be uninsured in 2023(even after the Affordable Care Act) Congressional Budget Office.

7 in 10 people making less than $15,000 look up healthcare information on the internet Findcare surveys.

 

Findcare connects people to healthcare.

 
 

Access to clinics

Findcare.org includes information on over 500 clinics in Michigan and approximately 2,000 in the Midwest. Access to these clinics is available through the desktop, tablet and mobile versions of findcare.org.

Crowdsourced and sustainable

Findcare.org is based on a system for adding and updating clinic information that relies on a form of crowdsourcing, though with added measures to ensure the validity of information. Individuals who submit valid information can become “trusted users” over time. This makes findcare.org a dynamic and essentially self-updating site.
