The real benefits were to the people who now have a simple and effective way to track their wellness and manage their health. Simple recoding of multiple parameters gave better insights into the patient’s history and their environment.Reporting and sharing features gave much easier access to patient’s data to doctors, health institutes and labs. Graded response management helped patients respond to their current situation better. Integrated with an online community, people were now able to get answers to the questions that directly relate to their health. Open source tools were used to build the online community saving time and money.
The wellness company wanted to create a community of people who can help each other. They wanted to give them tools that would make tracking and managing their health easier. They wanted to enable people to share their wellness information with doctors and other medical facilities without going through much hassle
The challenge here was to provide people with tools that enabled them to record various parameters about their condition and enable them to share it their with other people especially with doctors and other medical institutes. The tools should be designed keeping in mind that for suffering people it is important to regularly keep track of their condition. In some cases they need to check their condition up to six or more times a day. The tool’s interface should not just be quick and easy access but also be able to suggest and facilitate a corrective actions as soon as any degradation in the person’s condition is noticed.
Considering the seriousness of the application the team created a strategy by addressing many important aspects of way people suffering from asthma and diabetes manage their health. By understanding the way people live their life and maintain their health an idea for mobile apps was designed. The apps gave quick access to the most accessed features like recording new observations, recording the environment, tracking medicines etc. The apps had a built-in graded response to prompt appropriate action when observations were out side the normal limits.
The apps were enabled with a capability to view comprehensive reports about how the person’s health was maintained. It also enabled sharing their data with other people via various methods. One such crucial method was integration with popular medical record keeping applications using which person’s medical data could be further shared with many medical institutes, labs and doctors. A dedicated online forum was created and integrated with the apps to build a community that promotes wellness.
