Blood cancer charity, Anthony Nolan, has launched a new app to help stem cell transplant patients track their progress post-procedure. Imagineear was commissioned to design and develop My Transplant Tracker based on the framework of BeYou+, an HIV health tracking app created and co-funded by Imagineear with Chelsea and Westminster Hospital FT’s charity CW+.
My Transplant Tracker allows patients to chart and monitor personal health and medical information, organise their appointments, set reminders, record their health professionals, access patient services, read reliable and specific information about how their body and mind may be affected by the transplant and how to manage any long- or short-term changes to their life or those around them. A goal setting feature, with daily reminders, encourages patients’ progress and they are rewarded with positive messages when they reach their aims.
Patient confidentiality is secured with a personalised four-digit passcode required to access the app, and all data is locally stored on their device, so is not vulnerable to interception in the cloud.
A new interface has been designed to match the Anthony Nolan branding and the framework and functionality has been altered to fit the needs of stem cell transplant patients. Using a framework already proven successful in a clinically-robust environment has been beneficial and cost-saving for the charity.
Stem cell transplant patients can use this app to focus on being healthy and living well with the ability to set their own motivational goals to aid good recovery. To have specific, reliable, up-to-dateinformation provided in a convenient and accessible way means patients can be supported on their post-transplant journey towards better physical and emotional well-being.
The app is free and available in iOS and Android versions from the App Store and Google play.
