The Idea

Digitally Track Mental Health Symptoms

The concept for LAMP was developed by researchers that wanted to better record the symptoms of patients participating in mental health clinical trials. The app's creators wanted to take advantage of the fact that most people own their own smart devices capable of recording and uploading data about their symptoms. The benefit of logging data on personal devices is its immediacy.

As a trial subject experiences symptoms, they could record it in real-time, and the results would be uploaded and made available to researchers quickly and efficiently. With this strong concept established, LAMP's creators were ready to partner with a developer that could realize their application.

We were able to build a smartphone tool that could be used by those with mental illness to learn more about their condition and have the ability to collect research data with their consent.

The Process

Designing an Accessible Interface and Securing Patient Data

With any software that records and transmits sensitive medical data, our team takes extensive precautions and measures to ensure users' privacy is maintained. LAMP was no exception. We had to ensure that, no matter the underlying operating system or connection, communication between the application and the researchers was secure.

To that end, we utilized connection encryption protocols that met or exceeded HIPAA requirements. Another area that required careful consideration was the app's UI/UX. Our designers had to ensure the interface was straightforward and accessible, in order to allow trial subjects of all backgrounds to easily use the application.

The Results

An Invaluable Research Tool

After active development and quality assurance testing phases ended, the final result is an app that not only lives up to its original design but surpasses it. Originally, the application was only going to be used to monitor the mental health of those who have schizophrenia. However, the application was expanded to encompass other mental illnesses as well, including Alzheimer's and chronic depression.

The app's versatility, along with its well-designed and implemented interface, makes it an invaluable utility for mental health researchers. As the app continues to be adopted, its functions and features can be expanded, allowing it to keep pace with the evolving mental health field.
