MOBILE APP | WEB APPLICATION | HEALTHCARE | INTEGRATION
Ideomed was a mobile app development startup that spun out of Spectrum Health, a Grand Rapids-based Michigan health system in 2010. Ideomed specialized in innovative, personalized health management solutions with a focus on healthcare-related connected devices. Their founder, Keith Brophy, spearheaded efforts to create Abriiz, a two-part web application platform and mobile app, to help children and their guardians manage asthma.
In 2015, Ideomed was reabsorbed back into Spectrum Health but the app still being used today by Spectrum-owned health plan Priority Health members with kids who have asthma.
The Abriiz web application was already created by another Michigan-based development company, but they were looking for Michigan development experts to support their in-house team of programmers, enhance the app features, and fix bugs.

The program acts as a patient engagement app developed to help patients manage their overall health, from chronic conditions such as asthma to everyday health issues. Users manage settings and customize elements on the web application while tracking daily information and goals on the mobile application. Abriiz users can also set up medication reminders and track upcoming medical appointments on their mobile app.
Abriiz has a dedicated team of programmers and relies on Logic Solutions for bug fixes and app feature enhancements. Some of those enhancements include:
- Improved user interface
- Enhancing medication notifications and alarms on the mobile app
- Ability to create user accounts on mobile devices
- Giving patients the ability to reorder medication from their mobile device.
- Ability to share information with friends and family members on iOS
According to Spectrum’s website, as of 2013 the app had racked up “100,000 doses delivered”, its metric for how many times Abriiz users reported taking a medication as instructed.
