Over 100,000 people have used the app to help guide their initial engagement into a non-pharmaceutical treatment for chronic pain.
A large U.S. medical device manufacturer built an innovative product for patients suffering from chronic pain. The treatment system centered around implantable pulse generators (IPGs).
Because the treatment was designed for long-term use, continuously gathering information about the solution's efficacy helped patients share that information with their doctors. The company looked at improving the quality of information and ease of sharing to provide valuable insights into patient well-being.
A mobile app with a user-friendly interface could make it easier for patients to record data about their pain, such as location and severity. Uploading that data to a web interface could make it easier for doctors to access.
However, the device manufacturer did not have sufficient internal developer resources to expeditiously build the different components.
GlobalLogic helped the client develop a website, backend, and mobile application platform designed to help patients better manage their chronic pain journey.
GlobalLogic assumed responsibility for developing the website and backend component and leveraged deep mobile-app expertise to perform the Android and iOS development, including UI and business logic.
GlobalLogic further performed manual verification and testing.
The app is currently one of the highest-ranked pain tracker health apps on the web and mobile stores.
Its popularity is increasing awareness of and generating leads for IPG treatments. GlobalLogic:
Extended the client’s team capacity.
Reduced the length of development cycles.
Enabled the client to kick off multiple new initiatives, such as IPG companion and trial app development.
