Mobile Application, Healthcare Application
Drs. Michelle Sholzberg, Lisa Hicks, and Andrea Lausman with St. Michaels’ University noticed an alarming trend of women with severe anemia well into their pregnancies. The condition can cause premature delivery, low birth weight, childhood anemia, postpartum depression and even death. They developed a paper-based toolkit used in ob/gyn clinics for diagnosing and treating the condition. In 2017 they approached Troon to migrate their paper product to a website to educate physicians and a mobile app to help patients manage their iron health. And Troon delivered! Using the ionic framework, Troon built an MVP hybrid app that enabled Iron Mom to launch with both IOS and Android version. Key metrics were captured through careful integration of Firebase.
Unity Health Hospitals across Canada are now using the Iron Mom app. Within a year of its release, the doctors witnessed a tenfold increase in the average number of monthly iron-level tests done in obstetric clinics at St. Michael’s, and a sizeable decrease in the risk of anemia.
