Child-Friendly Patient App Recognised at M&K Awards
Digital Health Age covers the recognition of KidPro, DataArt's patient engagement app for children, which took third place in the IT & Communication category at the 2019 M&K Awards.
“KidPro is a patient engagement solution prototype for paediatric patients that consists of two interconnected applications, one for the child and one for the parents.
The children’s application is gamified by an animated interactive squirrel that leads the child through the daily schedule, suggests personalised educational content and rewards for compliance. The application captures digital readings, gathers daily statistics about the child’s condition and reports it to the parental application.
The parental app guides parents through the treatment process and monitors the child’s condition and progress through a history of indicators. This provides educational content and recommendations for the child’s daily routine, diet and activity. It also reminds the parents of the time for the child to take medication and scheduled doctor visits.
Ivan Pantykin, delivery manager of health care and life sciences at DataArt said: ‘Treatment adherence is an important issue in healthcare, and there is a fundamental need to have a product that will help solve the challenges for the youngest patients.’”
