What is WellApps?
Imagine your personal physician was with you 24 hours a day for a month to witness the symptoms of your chronic illness. He/she would be able to keep you feeling well.

WellApps creates this effect virtually, using mobile and online symptom tracking applications. Patients can log their symptoms using our simple apps (WellApps) and participating physicians can see their patients’ data in real-time.

Furthermore, de-identified data can be collected anonymously and shared with researchers to make progress in the treatment of chronic illnesses.

Let us know what you think

Danielle, from We Are Crohn's - I just got it! This is AWESOME. I have been keeping my CDAI in an excel spreadsheet. No more excel for me!

Kello82 from crohnsforum.com - i love that gi monitor.
very cool, it would come in so handy when you are filling out the mandatory paperwork at the start of every dr appt...symptoms worse, better, pain scale, med changes, etc. I can never remember that stuff

Kyle, from We Are Crohn's - This app is a life saver. I have a crazy life and my can never find time to write down this stuff for my next gi appointment.

Different Symptoms

My Crohn's is higher up the intestine which means that the bleeding can be black. Could we have a way of capturing it. Also since it causes strictures rather than diarrhea a way of not assuming that solid is good would be helpful.

I agree with many other

I agree with many other suggestions, and after using the app for a week, I also want to thank you for it and how useful it is. In addition to adding notes to both the stool and pain sections, it would help me if there were more than the three options under Stool, perhaps one to indicate firmer than Normal, as well as someplace to log other symptoms, such as hemorrhoids, tongue ulcers, and so on. I'm putting all the other stuff in the Stress notes now, but having more specific places to put them would be great. Wonderful program, thank you.

Porting to Android

Great idea and interesting app. Any chance that you'll have an Android version? I don't plan on ever owning an iPhone (probably many other "open-sourcers" out there with IBD). :-)

re: diet tracker - I think this is a nice feature, but using your application along with something like SparkPeople.com is probably more useful. Bottomline: find a way to make it simple otherwise you'll be reinventing the wheel (many other web apps available for tracking diet).

Again, great app and I hope you see much success. It's too bad mobile phones don't have a gas monitor. I've always thought that the chemistry that inevitably becomes the smell of our BM's could have useful information. (gosh, can't talk about these topics just anywhere can we...) ;-)

Pooparazzi

I found it great to take pictures of my daughters stools to show the docs exactly what it looks like when they ask. Was it a little bloody or a lot?, how soft was it?, etc. In discussions with doctots and other parents in IBD groups it was accepted as a good idea to have pictures, anything that will help the doctors help our loved ones.
when my daughter is hospitalized I write everything on the white board in our Hospital room so when the doctors visited there was an exact recolletion of everthing that happened since their last visit, medical doses, food intake, BMs, with times. I always have my camera phone and my laptop with me, so when the Drs came in in the morning, I had all the information ready. This was also helpfull when the Doctors went off shift for a few days and we got a new ones. Being in a teaching hospital you get asked the same questions over and over. Lastly, can this be made into a stand alone app for PC or Mac. I would gladly would buy it. Thanks for your work.

GI Monitor ....Fantastic idea

I would firstly like to say thank you for creating such a great application. Trying to track how I feel on an excel spreadsheet has not only been tedious but not entirely accurate for me as I can not quite remember all that i eat and how my stool is after. This is a great concept as I always have my itouch on me and its on the go. I do agree with Brian that a food section would be helpful for many. I just wanted to take the time and say thank you as this really has made my life that much easier. Great job!

Suggestions

I think your app is GREAT! A few suggestions:
1. Add Pentasa to the RX list
2. Make 1,000mg doses possible in RX
3. Make start date of meds editable
4. Allow deletion of log instances for accidental adds

Thank you so much fir making this app!

Re: Suggestions

Thanks for the suggestions! Some things to keep in mind:

1. You can add any medications you want to the Medications list. On the Meds page, upper right: Plus sign - add a medication. We will also update the list in future releases.

2. 1,000 Mg = 1g - (we actually talked about this during development - not a lot of people know this). We will also consider his suggestion for a future release.

3. Re: Start date of meds - this is on the list (also adding start/end date for email report)

4. This will now be on the list for a future release. Good suggestions.

PLEASE KEEP THE SUGGESTIONS COMING. We are committed to making this the best possible application for IBD patients.

Thanks,
Brett

Adding more meds

I think you should be able to type in your on meds if they are not listed. With their being new meds all the time it would save you from always updating.

You CAN add your own meds...

There is a notepad in the upper right hand corner of the Medications page. Just type in your new medication and it saves it to the master list. :)

Notes for stool log section

I just bought this app & know it'll be my most useful app purchase by far. My doctor wants a little more info about each stool than the stool log supplies. I agree with the urgency comment but could also use stool size and a section for notes such as "first movement after enema/medication" or mental reminders for discussion questions with doctor.
Thanks for creating this app, it might save my life!
