Challenge

 Custom Application Development  Mobile App Development   User Experience Design | Visual Design |

Ackmann & Dickenson was tasked with creating a native iOS ipad application for the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center (UMMCC). Hospitals are often overwhelming and hard for patients to navigate. The solution? A state-of-the-art application built specifically for interactive kiosks and placed strategically around the hospital. The application needed to seamlessly provide patients and their families with reliable and useful information to navigate the campus. Two versions of the app were required; one for the cancer clinic and a second for the general hospital.

Approach

Requirements gathering sessions provided A&D with a fundamental understanding of the app’s ideal functionality. Initial features included medical resources, hospital specific widgets, and guidance through the clinic and hospital. A simple, user-friendly interface was designed to appeal to a wide demographic audience.

Outcome

The team at the Masonic Cancer Center as well as the general Masonic Children’s Hospital can now easily modify the application’s content. In addition, they can update and change resources, guides, and personalized hospital messaging. All kiosks throughout the clinic are equipped with the latest technology to better serve patients, families, and visitors alike.
