GroAssist Patient Support App

What is GroAssist?

We know parents and carers can find it challenging to motivate their children to take daily growth hormone injections. There are appointments to remember, height to be monitored, and injections to be taken each day. That’s why we designed GroAssist.

Launched in August 2017, GroAssist is a mobile app designed specifically for parents and carers of paediatric patients who have been prescribed Genotropin, to help them get the most from their growth hormone treatment and keep on track with injections.

Key features

GroAssist has a number of features to help patients fit growth hormone treatment into their lifestyle:

  • Helping parents and carers establish a daily injection routine by recording injection sites and setting reminders
  • ‘Scratch-and-reveal' rewards to motivate and engage patients with their treatment
  • Growth charts to help parents and carers see how treatment is helping
  • Data from the app can support treatment decisions with healthcare professionals
  • Details can be shared between parents and carers, which can improve continuity of care when treatment is managed between multiple carers
