Ready to improve your digital health app

The rise of digital health apps is empowering patients, caregivers, physicians, and researchers alike. These apps bring the ability to monitor and manage our health with the devices we use every day, offering everything from virtual doctor visits to personalized diet management.

The pandemic seems to have increased our interest in the benefits of telemedicine and monitoring your health in general. While a series of lockdowns were imposed in many countries globally, mobile apps are being used more than ever; i.e., consulting your doctor online, registering for medical services, or getting your prescriptions filled remotely seems like a sensible option and a necessity in most cases.

Impact of Covid on the healthcare sector

Impact-of-Covid

COVID-19 has led to a rapid increase in the development of new digital health apps, with an average of 250 apps added per day in 2020. Today, there are over 43,000 mobile and web health apps, but let's be real: do all those apps actually contribute to better health outcomes?

To make an impact, the functionality of these apps has to be as productive as the services they provide. Outdated code, slow performance, and unmet quality development expectations are just some of the common issues that can turn an innovative idea into just another app, only to be removed from a user's home screen.

That's where Think360 comes in: our Digital Healthcare usability testing aims to fix such problems, optimizing your digital health app to make a real impact by evaluating key aspects of its functionality.

Our Fundamentals:

Our-Fundamentals

Start with Code and Technology

No matter how valuable your concept is, a faulty code base can make or break your app's success. Our teams start with basic but often overlooked functionality checks, such as determining whether existing code supports new development, or whether unused "dead code" is affecting the app's performance.

Our experienced team will start by conducting a detailed review of these aspects as well as App Store Guidelines compliance, server implementation, and more.

Privacy and Data Security

The rise of digital health apps naturally comes with patient privacy concerns, so data security needs to be a top priority for your app. It is extremely important that new users feel that their information is secure, especially with patient populations that are unfamiliar with using technology as part of their personal healthcare journey.

We advocate creating a thorough blueprint during development to ensure that the app's framework safely and securely serves all potential patients, including identifying the purpose of the app for all stakeholders involved.

Experience: Emphasize the UX in Your Design

Digital health apps must adhere to appropriately high standards given the impact they can have on patients' mental and physical health. At Think360, we use human-centered design to emphasize empathy and efficiency in the development process.

Our best practices Include essential usability testing steps. We address all issues by using industry-leading design review methodologies to establish the full scope of user experience issues, determine compliance with accessibility standards, and verify that app features actually work for users.

How We Can Help?

Your app's development may have intended to include these inclusive factors, but quality issues with the original development team affect their actual implementation.

Let's remove whether they allow the accomplishment of goals or tasks. Ensuring ease of use and practicality is the best way to ensure that your user base will be satisfied with your app's service.

Let's get started!

Once your digital health check is complete, you'll have all the tools that you need to reintroduce your app to the world - including several different quality reports, cost estimates, and actionable recommendations for the next steps. If you'd like, we'll even put together a team to implement those changes.
