The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects 1 in every 44 children in the United States. Autism is a disability that can include a wide range of symptoms including a lack of certain motor skills which can lead to anxiety and depression.

To fulfill the client’s primary objective of making “healthcare accessible to everyone”, our team first gained an understanding of their ecosystem including their autistic patients, their caregivers, and therapists. We then redesigned existing platform with a robust and sustainable technical architecture, user-friendly design, and increased flexibility to meet their evolving patient needs.

The new web and mobile-based digital platform enables clinicians and behavior technicians to easily access medical data, monitor patient progress, and follow through with treatment plans – greatly improving patient care and therapy impact. Making changes to treatment when needed, and working with caregivers for better outcomes has never been easier. All within just a few clicks!
To further elevate the user experience, the revamped digital portal provides therapists and caregivers the ability to study parent feedback, and seamlessly plan future sessions. With advanced data analytics and custom data visualization modules, they can now make smarter, faster, and more informed medical decisions. The new format, features, and functions truly elevate the patient and caregiver experience. Here’s a snapshot of the product modernization journey –

The new digital portal has empowered their behavioral therapists to better manage and monitor patient treatments, their impact, and progress. It has done wonders to improve the mindset of patients and their families by helping them transition from confusion, anxiety, and frustration to relief knowing they have found the best autistic care.
