Bariatric Surgery is considered one of the most complex surgeries of the present time not just because of the operative process but also because of the extensive follow-ups, which lasts for 5-6 years sometimes and the accompanying diet and exercise plans.
Because of the long duration, 60% of the patients stop going to the doctors after a certain time, which can lead to complexities after.
To solve the issue of long term patient engagement, Mutelcor was developed. The app gives a platform to patients and doctors where they can interact through video call or message and share case progress or measures that need to be taken, in one place.
While first developed with Bariatric Surgery in mind, the app now caters to a wide range of surgeries and disease-related patient engagement processes.
We placed a Categorization System on the website for the Doctors to categorize their patients according to the severity of their conditions.
Every patient called for a different follow-up schedule, which made it impossible for the doctors to set a common schedule. We gave them a platform to feed in case wise follow-up instructions which were then sent to the patients.
We added the option for the patients to scan their medical data on the app, to save the time it would take to fill the information manually on the app.
We Started the Mutelcor's app development process by first creating a wireframe and then measuring that up to the HL7 and HIPAA standards.
After changing the designs and processes, we finally came on to one set wireframe, which we based the app on. Next, we segregated the app into various different modules that were then each converted and tackled as a sprint. All the while, keeping the developers, designers, testers, and the client in a closed loop.
Our Wireframing and prototyping process was based on the aim to give the patients’ maximum value in fewer steps.
To make it possible for the users to have a stress-free app experience, we used floating buttons on every screen which made it easy for them to upload information. We also kept everything on the dashboard so that they won’t have to move from one screen to other to complete an event.
The Mutelcor design principle was set to offer a quick in and out experience to the patients and a clear view repository to the doctors.
We suggested using cold colors for the background of the app’s design. These tones establish an overall sense of tranquillity that is necessary to help users concentrate on the more important features of this app.
San Francisco has a healthy set of options, optimized for display on screens.
The implementation of San Francisco across the various platforms makes it easier for developers to choose monospaced, or proportionally-spaced numerals.
The reason why we suggested developing a mobile app for the patients, instead of a website like in case of doctors, was because the patients had to fill in data specific to their physical activity and nutrition intake on the go. Besides this, having a mobile app made more sense for Mutelcor’s wearable integration feature.
Since the doctor’s work revolve around a huge repository of medical data to peruse everyday, a website made viewing and saving the data a lot easier. Also, because the doctors have a desk job, a website was a more strategic choice.
We developed the Mutelcor app for iOS, Android, and Web, keeping the individual platform's requirement in consideration. Following the agile methodology, we were able to handle multiple part of the apps at the same time, thus ensuring utmost quality at a faster delivery speed. We kept the client in loop at every stage, giving them a working example of the app everytime we crossed a milestone.
We came to Appinventiv with an idea of making patient engagement easier for Bariatric Surgeons, after an year, we have an app that also monitors Electronic Medical Record, tracks the nutrition & activity level, and have the facility of e-prescription, monitoring body vitals and conditions data.
So let`s get in touch and turn your app idea into a brilliant mobile app solution.
