We began working with Christine Blackmore on MyHeartApp in 2014. As an adult with congenital heart disease, she was looking for a way to more easily time and track her symptoms so that she could provide better data to her caregivers. We designed MyHeartApp to feel friendly and personal, with colorful symptom icons and a beating heart.
In 2017, we worked with Christine and Dr. Ari Cedars to build an updated version of the iOS and Android apps in partnership with Baylor Scott and White Health and the University of Texas. We streamlined the symptom tracker and added new, standardized data-collection tools that provide real-time data for meaningful research into adult congenital heart disease. The University of British Columbia signed on to pilot the use of MyHeartApp in their research.

It has been such an amazing experience to work on this project together. I appreciate your humor, enthusiasm, and your deep commitment to my project... all the way from concept to creation I felt you really cared about what we were creating... and to me, that counts for a great deal. Integrity rocks! Please pass on my gratitude and happy dancing to your team... they have been mighty resources and the app looks gorgeous and works. Serious shout out here! Thank goodness we found each other. It has been so much fun to work with you. Maybe one day we can high-five and fist-bump in person... not to mention break into The Hustle.
