The Diabetes Office Visit app marries both an eBook and a diabetes management tool, with the ultimate goal of helping diabetic patients set targets with their doctor and then use the app to actively monitor how close daily habits are to hitting those targets. Appiction client Dr. David Calder envisioned an app that would not only share his ebook with the world, but would put its lessons into an actionable format.
One of the keys to achieving this goal was for the information a patient gathers to be sharable, that's why the iPhone application development team at Appiction included an export feature that allows patients to quickly send all their collected data straight to a physician or pharmacist. Another key element was to make the information input easy and multi-faceted to reflect the many data points a diabetic needs to record. The iPhone application developers at Appiction created a layered touch menu that stacks glucose, blood tests, medication, exercise, and carbohydrate information alongside one another and spreads them through the hours of a day, giving patients a comprehensive view of their management efforts.
Diabetes Office Visit is the only diabetes management app in the App Store to also include an eBook, and the information to empower patients to improve their diabetes healthcare. This iPhone application development offered Appiction the opportunity to work with a medical professional and understand ways that the convenience of mobile technology can make health maintenance easier.
