VITAS Healthcare wanted to modernize their app to have a cleaner user interface and improved UX while also making it easier to provide the latest tools and information to support hospice care professionals. They needed the app to integrate with their content management system so that regulatory updates would be automatically passed on to the app, with no app update required. The new app also needed to allow medical specialists to be able to refer new patients directly within the app with offline support.
Atomic Robot designed and developed an app that made it easier for healthcare professionals to provide higher quality patient care at a difficult time. The hospice referral process was simplified through the app’s new interface. Healthcare specialists could also use the app to better educate patients about hospice choices. Staff could update patient care information, review regulatory updates, and connect with healthcare professionals through the new app.
Atomic Robot was able to integrate helpful utilities into the app, including the VITAS referral criteria, facility locations, hospice industry news, and a BMI calculator, to facilitate medical professionals in providing patient care. The content management system integration and a smart download mechanism ensured that the app would stay updated regardless of wifi access or mobile connectivity.
The app redevelopment resulted in a better user experience for hospice workers and medical professionals, a more useful tool, and most importantly a happy customer.
