This fiscally focused health tracking app for Parkinsons patients lets them donate their data in return for a share of the funds generated by it. MyHealthPal is an iOS app that enables users to send the data the platform collects to relevant research institutions, scientists and charitable organizations in exchange for part of the revenue it gets in the future.

The analytics platform primarily helps people suffering with Parkinsons disease to manage their condition. They can input their daily details such as behavior, moods and symptoms into the health tracking app. MyHealthPal turns user entries into data visualizations that can be shared with friends, family, caregivers, doctors and the researchers. There is also a reminder-sending medication schedule feature as well as capacities-monitoring games.
