Patient Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM)

Patient Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM)

A user-friendly application to help patients track their Eczema symptoms using an interactive app that can be shared across the UK's healthcare network.

The Challenge

Nottingham University’s Dermatology research department approached us with idea of developing an app to provide an interactive representation of their current paper based Patient Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM) questionnaire.

What we did

We choose to utilise some of the best emerging technologies including Angular2 and TypeScript allowing us to create a robust and fast app that could be deployed to both iOS and Android. Our design team used Sketch to produce wireframes that represented the journey and different screens within the app. This allowed us to work with the university to get the best journey for the user. The app was developed to work on a range of different resolutions from mobile phones to the latest tablets. 

For the graphical representation of the results we utilised JavaScript to generate graphs as soon as the user submitted a questionnaire. The user can then access these graphs straight away or at anytime via the app. To make sure these provided the best representation of the data for the user we developed filters that allowed the graphs to be rendered on the fly with different criteria - such as over a restricted time period. This information could then easily be interpreted by their clinician including any notes that can be recorded against a questionnaire submission. 

Finally, we also integrated notifications that could be toggled on / off as well as giving the ability to alter the frequency they're shown.
