The Spina Bifida Association (SBA) serves adults and children who live with the challenges of Spina Bifida. Since 1973, SBA has been the only national voluntary health agency solely dedicated to enhancing the lives of those with Spina Bifida and those whose lives are touched by this challenging birth defect. SBA has a presence in more than 125 communities nationwide and touches thousands of people each year.
The SBA app has two purposes:
1. To provide health care providers with a tool to quickly and easily access guidelines for the care of people with Spina Bifida at any time right from their cell phones.
2. To provide Spina Bifida patients with a tool to track their varying symptoms anywhere at any time right from their cell phones.
Bracketmedia’s relationship with the Spina Bifida Association began in June 2019 when they became a maintenance client for their website. In the following months, they revealed to us the need for a mobile app for their patients and health care providers using both Android and IPhone. This was our second major app project and we hit the ground running with wireframes and the design phase. Since the organization already had a website, it was important to maintain their colors and brand identity while creating something unique to their needs. We worked together to create an easy to use symptom tracker with anatomy chart, pain scale, and a place to chart all of the symptoms, as well as a guideline section with easy to use filters for health care providers to use. We used React Native so this project would be available in both Apple and Android stores.
We challenged Bracketmedia with our App project - we needed an App that would serve two distinct audiences equally. They patiently listened to our goals, provided exceptional solutions, and exceeded our expectations in every way. They were always on top of the project and they made the work fun!
