I am about to submit my dissertation and would like a nice cover for the book.
My PhD research topic is patient portals (secure websites that give patients access to personal health information, secure emailing with care providers, prescription refills, etc.). Patient portals are technologies that place patients in the center of their care and empower them to take on a larger role. Patient portals integrate patient information that is recorded by different organizations and give patients one access point to it all.
It would be great if these ideas (information technology, patient empowerment, patient in the center, integration of personal health information) could come back in the cover design.
The title of my dissertation is "PATIENT PORTAL DEVELOPMENT AND OUTCOMES IN INTEGRATED AND FRAGMENTED HEALTH SYSTEMS". This title should be displayed visibly on the cover, but the illustration is what I want to focus on most. My name - Terese Otte-Trojel - should also appear on the cover, but in smaller font size.
In terms of style, I have created a PDF document with book covers I like. I hope these will inspire ideas. I am open to any color - but keep it fresh! (:
