HealthcareHealthcare and Food monitoring product

IMG-Food-as-Medicine
Our healthcare product helps consumer maintain their weight and a healthy lifestyle by providing important nutrient information about food items and common recipes by gathering inputs from the users.

In the search for ways to help make it easier for people to make healthier, reduced calorie food choices, studies have looked at whether providing structured daily diet plans* and shopping lists, and/or providing the actual food is more effective than less structured guidance.

challenge

Although calorie targets (and other educational weight loss information) were similar for everyone in the study, people asked to follow structured weight loss meal plans or who had food provided, lost more weight over 6 months (an average of 11.8kg) than people using less structured guidance (8kg loss). Of particular note is that people who had just the structured diet plans and shopping lists to follow lost as much weight as those who also had their food provided for free!:

solution

The solution Beamteq came up with combined cutting-edge technology with real-world practicality. Everyone knew that the systems had to be built from zero, the real challenge was architecting the application to build the complex features with better performance. The solution was to introduce proper workload management done through planning and estimation of how and when each feature will be developed.

This allowed the team members to be involved in the job which resulted in an enthusiastic team developing a enterprise-class product.

We were amazed by how little effort was required on our part to have Beamteq prepare these materials. We exchanged a few phone calls and e-mails, and they… handled the rest.
