Merge Healthcare App Prototype

Merge Healthcare - acquired by IBM for $1 billion in October 2015 - partnered with ZB App Studio (formerly Zippy Brain) to develop an app prototype to showcase at RSNA 2015.

This app acts as a route for inexpensive communication with users, incentivizes users to enroll in online learning, improves the efficiency of service requests and more.
