Review: “Track your pain, food, frequency of bathroom visits, and get access to educational tools to help you manage your symptoms. The ‘myIBD’ app helps teens and parents living with Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis manage their disease and get help more quickly. This app was developed by the staff at Toronto’s Hospital for Sick Children.”

Review: “It’s great to have mobile software for IBD health tracking. I give major props to the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto for funding this project. The basics of this app (like logging stools and pain) are intuitive. Logging more nuanced symptoms (appetite, fatigue, general wellbeing, pain after eating, and stress) are made difficult by an unintuitive information architecture (finding your way to the right screen is confusing). And, lastly, the ‘Payoff’ graph (the whole reason you’d be logging in the first place) was not given enough design or development attention. As a result, the app doesn’t do much to motivate the patient to track. So I’ll leave you with one call to action for designers and developers working on health-tracking apps: for a patient to track their health on a daily basis, they must have both motivation and ability. Give them the ability through easy and intuitive interfaces, but don’t forget to motivate them through a great payoff, insights, and rewards (helpful graphs and views of the data that make the tracking well worth the time given).”
