London is letting citizens track their own health using new technologies.

Digital Citizens: The Road to Good Health 

Population: 8,200,000
Challenge: public health

Too often, people lack the tools they need to effectively monitor and improve their own health in ways that can dramatically improve quality of life and reduce healthcare costs across the system. London will combat these problems with a coordinated, multi-stakeholder platform and new technologies (e.g., sensors and web and mobile apps), allowing citizens to track their own health and government to intervene to help at-risk patients.
