Constant Therapy is an application that helps patients improve cognitive, speech and language capabilities. This happens by completing tasks assigned by clinicians or by a machine-learning algorithm. Patient progress is shared with clinicians so that tasks can be adjusted to maximize recovery over time.
One of the unique challenges in designing the application experience is the widely varied needs and abilities of Contant Therapy users. Some users are significantly challenged in a handful of cognitive categories, while others have moderate challenges across several areas. Because of this, most tasks require advanced accessiblity definitions and usability tuning.
Some users prefer the most important parts of the interface on either the left or right side of the screen. They may have survived a traumatic brain injury or a stroke on one side of their brain. The app is much easier for these users with the primary actions on a particuar side of the screen.
This realization led to customizations applied based on information gathered during patient onboarding. These options can be updated at any time from the settings screen. No two brains are alike, so this kind of fine-grain control over the app interface allows the most patients to benefit from using the app.
At the core of the Constant Therapy experience are the Patient and Clinician Dashboards. These website based tools allow patients to manage account details, and clinicians to manage their patients all in one convenient place. Clinicians can review task homework progress, and review each patient's brain fingerprint.
A new feature of Clinician Dashboard is the ability to review and assign task homework to a patient. This complex flow previously existed only within the mobile application. Work began on integrating this flow with the Clinician Dashboard by interviewing clinicians familiar with Constant Therapy. This research identified several areas where the existing homework flow worked well, as well as areas that could benefit from being reworked within the Clinician Dashboard interface.
