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.

looking forward to it

i'm looking forward to the blackberry version. i try to do this in a notebook but it is hard to keep track of...however, i always have my blackberry.

BlackBerry

We are looking forward to providing a BlackBerry release. It has been a bit of a challenge since Apple set such a high standard with their app. development platform. But we recognize that a BlackBerry App. is needed and plan to get one out soon. We will also have a web-based mobile version of the app. for other mobile devices. For now, I would recommend logging your data online as much as possible...and it will sync with the BlackBerry app. when you log in for the first time.

Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for this app!

This app has been wonderful! I can already see a pattern forming. I would like to see two features added: the ability to chart the size of the bowel movement ( for example small, medium, large and extra large) and the ability to log excessive gas. Thank you so much for this app!

Thanks for the feedback and

Thanks for the feedback and I'm glad you find GI Monitor useful. In our next release, you will be able to create and log a "Custom Symptom" (as many as you'd like). Also remember that you can add notes to anything you log...in case you want to add detail like stool size. On the iPhone, notes are accessed via the notepad icon in the upper right of any logging screen.

What I would like to see

Hi.

This app earn a five-star rating from me if it was possible to view your data as graphs, choose which symptoms you would like to plot and add notes (food etc) as dots in the diagram. I would also like to be able to logg fever and custom symptoms. I think it would be better with a 1-5 scale instead of the current one.

Love the Feedback

I really appreciate the feedback from all of our users. Most of what you have requested is in our development roadmap, including: Charts/graphs to view symptoms and correlations, custom symptom logging and a sliding scale to rank symptoms (this last one is slated further down the road). Please keep the feedback coming as it will continue to shape our development queue. If this application isn't working well for us as patients, it will be of no use to the IBD community. Thanks to your continued feedback, GI Monitor will improve patient care, enable patients to play a more active role in managing our their conditions and also provide very valuable data for new areas of research. - Brett

Things I would like to see in an update

Add fever as one of the things you can keep a log over

Customizing symptoms; more choices as well?

I'm glad to hear that the ability to add custom symptoms is coming to the next upgrade. I'm wondering if instead of the three choices for each symptom, as it is now, we might get a sliding scale of perhaps 1 to 5? The definitions of the three choices rarely match what I've actually got going on, so a 1 to 5 ranking would allow me to establish my own parameters for what each number means.

In general, though, this is a wonderful program, very helpful and useful. A great idea. Thanks for putting it out there.

3 level rankings

Thanks for the feedback, RoCan. We are considering sliding rankings for future releases. But for this next release, custom symptoms will include 3 levels (low, medium and high). Selecting a level will not be required when logging a custom symptom. So if low, medium and high is not applicable, you can just log that the symptom occurred.

Love the application for the

Love the application for the iphone, i think it is wonderful. I was just wondering in the next version, if there is any plan to make more efficient the meal logging. I think that would be fantasic, maybe even nutritional info later on.

The feature i would love to see though, is often a lot of people have other symptoms that really effect them and are important for the doctor to keep track of and know about. I remember seeing an app that let you enter a condition, and symptoms, and you could rate each symptom. It would be great if your app did a similar thing with symptoms, so you had a button for log symptom. And you could in the settings enter all symptoms that effect you, and have a low / medium / high rating for each symptom. So whilst it would not effect your number score. It would go into the report.

So for example with my UC, i could enter symptoms "Bloating, Nausea, Vommiting, XYZ" and if i go into log symptoms, i can click on which symptom i want to log, and the Normal / low / med / high rating would come up as well as the time / date. That way other symptoms could be kept track of as well. Id love to see that feature added, so they could get put into the reports as well :).

Also with Meals, having the time meal was logged as part of the report would be great, so maybe you could see what meal was taken when, and compare it to stool consistancy / blood etc to see what foods your body doesent really like.

Id love to see that happen as soon as possible!.

Well done on the fantastic app. Its a lifesaver, just started using it and hope to continue using it every day to log and keep track.
