The ubiquity and convenience of smartphones carries great potential for collecting patient-reported data to address many gaps in research, especially those that rely on ongoing, real-time data collection. Health care apps have often suffered from low utility due to lack of consideration of the needs of multiple stakeholders. We employed an iterative user-centered design approach to create the myEczema smartphone application (app) to study the burden of disease of atopic dermatitis. We outline below the steps we took for developing myEczema for multiple stakeholders, including patients, clinicians, and researchers.
