For a project between HvA Students and the Academic Medical Centrum of Amsterdam we were asked to develop a fallback prevention application. De application is specially made for patients with the anxiety disorder body-dysmorphic disorder. After 12 weeks of therapy the patients have to go further on their own. Based on research, it showed up that after the 12 weeks most of the patients fallback in their old behaviour.
By talking with the doctors and the patients we get a better understanding of the therapy, the anxiety disorder and the difficulties for not falling back in the old pattern. We created an application where the user can start a diary with other patients. Different kind of API's will be integrated in the application, like the weather and your Google Agenda. The app will use this data to ask question how things were going. The user will be helpen to reflect on daily activities to see how they are doing.
On the 25th of January we were invited to pitch our concept at the eHealthweek. It was such a honor to be part of this event.
