RIVM Tick bite awareness app overzicht
Delivery: 2014, quarter 1

The Tick bite app informs users about the tick bites dangers and Lyme disease. The app offers several functionalities to prevent tick bites and associated risks. The app shows the activity level of the nymph stage of the tick and makes a ten-day forecast of it. Users can activate push notifications and receive messages when the activity level of the nymph stage reaches a critical limit. A forewarned user is forearmed.

The Tick bite app provides valuable information in the form of text, image and video. Following these instructions, one can check himself/herself on tick bites, remove the insect, and properly treat the bite. With the help of the tick bite journal, users can keep notes about the tick bite and the effects of it. Users can fill in relevant input fields, make a report and show it to a physician if necessary.

RIVM Tick bite awareness app beschrijving



"The RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and Environment) had the "Tick bite" app launched in April 2014. This app was initially developed for Android. With this app people can check what ticks are and how to correctly remove them (even without internet connection!). Starting from July 2014 the app will be available for IOS also.

In the beginning we have spoken with a number of potential executors and we chose for DTT. What struck us was that from the very start DTT was very involved in the issue and the development of the app. The rates were reasonable and certainly played a role in choosing DTT. During our collaboration, we got to know Jeffrey and Dirk better. We emailed and called eachother so often, we even noticed the urge to contact them when it wasn't necessary. I think that says enough!

In short, DTT has been a great partner to develop an app. They are reliable and always up for a joke. Great job!"

Desirée Beaujean, Head of Development and Implementation Department
