The United States' medical billing system is exceptionally complex. Medical bills and Explanation of Benefits (EOB) statements are undecipherable and incomprehensible even for experts to understand. In addition, a 2015 survey conducted by TransUnion Healthcare found that 55% of American patients were either sometimes or always confused about their medical bills and that 61% of patients were either sometimes or always surprised about their out-of-pocket costs.
Working with Dr. Denise Herzing of the Wild Dolphin Project, we are creating wearable computers for conducting two-way communication experiments with cetaceans. With CHAT, one researcher uses the waterproof system to broadcast a sound, associated with an object with which dolphin's like to play. A second researcher, upon detecting the sound, passes the object to the first. The researchers pass objects back and forth, further associating the sound with the object. The goal is to see if the dolphins mimic the sound in order to "ask" for the play object.
