Solution & Concept
Through an interview with a patient with lupus and through some quick literature review, my colleague and I came up several ideations for a mHealth app aimed at adolescents.
We determined several sections of the app, including:
- a health journal for the patient to track their symptoms and medications;
- personal health trends;
- My Loop (includes MyHealth Passport, appointments, contacts, badges/challenges); and
- LoopIn (the social aspect of the app).
Mocks were created using using Adobe Photoshop.
The app was presented to a panel of judges at the first annual AppsForHealth competition and placed first. The concept was then presented to the Lupus Consensus Meeting in December 2012, held by Dr. Miriam Kaufman.
