A New York based nonprofit organization which prevents & reduces problematic use, abuse and dependence on alcohol & drugs.
With an aim to promote health & provide access to services for those at risk or suffering from addiction, the client needed a mobile platform where patients can interact with health coaches & get immediate assistance on substance use & addictive behaviors.
To combat for this crusade, they were looking for a technology partner to eliminate following challenges:
Tedious data entry system hampering productive time of resources
Inefficiencies in retrieving meaningful data from unorganized patient information
Developing a complex algorithm to infer patient’s severity based on their answering patterns
Tedious and monotonous data entry system
Diaspark partnered with the client to develop an iPad app that helps health coaches to pre-screen patients with questions related to their drinking habits or drug use
