We partnered with the Pediatric Oncology Department at the University of Minnesota Masonic Hospital for Children to develop a mobile application to help survivors of childhood cancer after their treatment.
When someone goes through cancer treatments as a child, they may not remember all the details of the treatment they had as an adult. We partnered with the Pediatric Oncology Department at the University of Minnesota Masonic Hospital for Children to develop a mobile application to help survivors of childhood cancer after their treatment.
As part of our design process, we created a prototype to better understand how pediatric cancer survivors might use a mobile app that can keep track of key details such as medications, chemotherapy infusions and other details about their treatment. The prototype allowed us to get a working version of the mobile app in front of people who would likely use it to help validate the overall value of the application and identify opportunities for enhancements. The prototype also helped our client get a better understanding from their development partner of the overall scope, timing and cost for the full development of the app.
The prototype gave our client, their developers and constituents a clear picture of the vision for the Survivorship app and helped establish a solid foundation to expand on.
Key Business Benefits:
- Helped our client understand the perceived value of the application with primary audiences
- Provided an example for internal developers to estimate and scope the effort
- Created a clear way for our client to communicate the business value of the application with internal constituents
- User research and concept validation
- Scoping the development effort
- Socializing the value of the application with constituents
- Establishing a UX framework for the development of the application
