Agendocrine: WinService (product name) is a software platform designed to provide interactive education with a random variable reward. WinService reinforces behavior by providing a reward of variable size with each correct question answered -- creating a kind of "Educational Slot Machine". This product would be used in the education of hospital staff through the use of situational learning. While any reward system could be used, we propose that the reward be given in the form of micro-units of paid time off. Using PTO as a reward currency creates a win-win situation for employers and staff as staff is given time as a reward and the hospital limits time spent in the in servicing process.

Human Design Group: MinIT 2 Healthy (product name) is a web-based platform that encourages individuals to get up and move for two minutes every 60 minutes. Participants login to MinIT 2 Healthy on any Internet-connected device and enter their progress (for example, a quick two-minute walk or any other physical movement/exercise). That progress is posted on the newsfeed of the participant’s network and the participant earns points based on the hourly consistency and type of movement. Points can be redeemed within contributing networks of sponsors to increase motivation and continued effort. New movement and point-earning challenges would be updated on a regular basis to maintain a reward-challenge system that would keep participants “playing” consistently and over time.
