About the solution

She discovered that over time she had created a pattern - A picture of her mental and physical ups and downs. With that newfound knowledge she could take steps to improve her condition. Kimberly shared her remarkable findings with doctors who encouraged her to create a mobile app to share her lifechanging tools with others.

Once Kimberly was out of the hospital she went to an Apple store in San Diego with her charts and drawings to find out if they could help her. She was referred to Ditty Labs, a mobile app developer. A month later Mood Watch was ready to go live.

The App allows those with mood disorders the tools to track how they are doing throughout the day. It helps patients to understand their own mood patterns and add to discussions with their health care providers. It uses a set of questions that track users sleep quality, blood pressure and meditation. They are asked to rate their anxiety level, mood and more three times a day. Additional personal notes are allowed to be entered during each entry. With the click of a button a report can be generated about the information during the week that can be printed out. The App has alarms that ensure that patients track their moods each day.
