thalTracker is designed for adults and adolescents with Thalassemia and iron overload. It has been designed by a group of patients and Thalassemia specialists in Canada to help patients to better self-manage their chronic blood disorder. The purpose of the App is to support the user in tracking levels of their iron overload and associated complications, identify trends, improve adherence to treatment, and facilitate communication of information to their healthcare provider during regular clinic visits. thalTracker reminds users to take their medication on time and of appointment dates, and encourages positive behaviors with respect to disease self-management. The user will record data into the App, such as values from blood tests and imaging results, including ferritin, cardiac and liver MRI iron results. An adherence function lets you set a chelation goal and then tracks how well you have achieved your target. We hope this will assist the user in becoming more adherent with chelation medication over time. The App should be used in consultation with your healthcare provider and does not replace the recommendations made by your healthcare team. Please note that absolutely no health or personal information is collected by the App developer and any data is stored only on your device. We place the highest regard to your privacy. You will be asked to provide some feedback on how useful the App is after 1 month and 6 months of use. This will help us make further improvements. The App has been endorsed by the Thalassemia Foundation of Canada and Cooley's Anemia Foundation.
