IE is delighted to announce our appointment by 2gether NHS Foundation Trust to design and build a Responsive Web App version of the Trust’s successful Moodometer iPhone app – an interactive mood diary which helps users monitor, understand and receive top tips about their emotional wellbeing.
The website, due to be launched by 31 March 2012 is a key part of the Trust’s Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) service and will offer information, guidance and talking therapy for people who are feeling stressed, anxious or depressed.
There are a growing number health and wellbeing apps being introduced into the market. Hardly a day goes by without coming across an article or press release discussing the latest in web and mobile apps for the health sector. This week alone, IE has tweeted about SpotDokter, GeoBlue Mobile and CalorieCount – and there will undoubtedly be more to come.
Over the past few months, IE has been talking about the rise in the use of mobile devices and the emergence of Responsive Web Design. As with all cutting-edge trends, there are always certain people who remain apprehensive about taking the plunge to include new technologies into their day to day lives. These days, most mobile users don’t think twice about checking train times or keeping up to date with the news on their smartphones – so why not adopt the same attitude when it comes to mental and physical health?
Health Secretary, Andrew Lansley, has made a stand, urging people to make use of patient targeted apps. With a wealth of new health apps entering the market every week, now is the time for patients to take control of their health.
If you have an idea for a health app and you’d like some expert help in bringing it to fruition, then drop us a line!
