Upbeat - mobile app for patients suffering from eating disorders

Overview

The Leeds and Yorkshire Trust, financed by the NHS, required a bespoke self-management platform for patients suffering from eating disorders. This platform would consist of an iOS and Android mobile app for patients, both built natively, and a corresponding web-based dashboard for clinicians to allow them to monitor the health of their patients.

Aim

Our aim for the app was to utilise mobile technology to increase the number of patient-clinician touchpoints, create a positive feedback loop, and improve overall patient outcomes. As the main function of the app was to serve as a crisis response to patients with an eating disorder, the user journey had to be reduced to a minimal amount of steps.

Process

User input is highly valued and implemented from our initial meetings. For UpBeat, we conducted a number of co-production sessions with the end-users during the initial design stage and post-development stage. Both patients and doctors contributed to the workshops, adding their thoughts on what would be the most useful and practical. This gave us a deeper understanding of the target user, which enabled us to to establish the easiest and most intuitive journey through the app.
