About the client
InsideOut is an Australia’s national research institute for eating disorders, with a strong focus on implementing their research discoveries into everyday practice to achieve the most efficient prevention and treatment. Their goal is to provide access to high-quality evidence-based treatment for every Australian experiencing eating disorders.
Shaped by users, developed by distinguished IT professionals: Customer video testimonial
As eating disorders are often treated with a combination of clinical therapy and self monitoring, the InsideOut team decided to develop a self monitoring app to remove the need for paper tracking. It would be an instrument to let the client keep track of their food, thoughts, and behaviours during their eating disorder journey. Push notifications would increase the users’ involvement, and work as some important reminders, e.g. about the following meal.
Such a mental health app would help the patients monitor and reflect on their eating disorder recovery and notice important trends about what seems to help them or hinder them in recovery. And, what’s important, they would do it under the supervision of a health professional, using a one-way messaging functionality to let the health professional leave relevant comments and suggestions.
In such a way the InsideOut self monitoring app would help their clients to monitor and reflect on their progress in recovery.
The client noted that their existing web app version of the self monitoring features was better suited to a dedicated mobile app in order to leverage the convenience of a mobile phone during important times such as meals or distressing situations. The client approached Apiko to create a companion app for the web version, converting the existing site while using best practice mobile design to make the app easy to use and engaging.
