Artifacts for the Future 2068
Diyagno empowers users by letting them choose when and where their illnesses are diagnosed. Additionally, whether the user wants to be surrounded by family and friends in their home, next to a significant other on the beach, or by themselves in a fast-food parking lot, Diyagno allows users to control who is with them and how their diagnosis is delivered.
