We leveraged a 10-week blueprinting process to finalize user journey, architecture, POCs, tool decisions, and implementation plan for the most critical success factor in the client's SCS therapy for patients with chronic pain.
The final solution was a radically new Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)-enabled mHealth app as a class III regulated Software as Medical Device (SaMD) supporting BYOD (iOS/Android) model.
The solution helped:
Built mHealth app on iOS and Android platforms for patients to manage surgically implanted stimulators with a phone - replacing the RFID remote
Allow parties to collaborate securely and programmers to program the stimulator remotely on physician's instruction, thereby averting physical visits by the patient to the physician's office
Collect usage details and other metrics from the app and back it up to HIPAA and GDPR compliant cloud storage at defined intervals allowing the data to be used for advanced clinical/research and business analytics
Created APIs to extract device data and integrate with EMR and other clinical systems for an accurate representation of patient's condition
