Coming out of this week’s eHealth conference, the Jonah Group is proud to share that our mobile development team won the Health System Management Award presented by Canadian Institute for Health Information for the mobile Trigger app at Hacking Health.

Trigger is a prosthetic memory app that enables patients to relive the past in context, the way memories are meant to be experienced. The app was created in partnership with Baycrest as a passion project for the Jonah Group team.

Competing against 28 other teams the Jonah team moved into the finals. The judging criteria included: Impact, Innovation, UX/UI Design and Graphics, Working Prototype, Adoption and Scalability.

Within 8 weeks the hybrid mobile app was created to run on both iOS and Android devices with features such as GPS based triggers, camera integration and a map view of nearby memories. Technologies include: PhoneGap, OpenStreetMap, mobile Javascript UI frameworks & Haversine Library.

The award provides Baycrest with funding to further develop the app, and promotion of the winning teamwithin medical communities.

Congratulations to the Jonah Group team of: Mark Bloomer, Robbie Bisnath, Benny Cheung, Yasaman Sefidgar, Dmitry Rogozhkin, and lead, Matthew Solo.
