AgencyQ's Creative Digital Work Wins Four Awards in 2023

Winning these honors recognize efforts to create meaningful digital experiences.

Two of AgencyQ's 2023 projects have been selected as winners of both the 18th Annual w3 Awards and the 19th Annual Davey Awards. The awards recognize two of AgencyQ’s designs: an app to help American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth in a substance use disorder aftercare program and a bootcamp website for training Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants. 

“At AgencyQ, we center our designs around empathy and human behaviors to ensure customer interactions are thoroughly considered and functional. Because we understand the quantitative and qualitative measures of success, we know that exceptional design has to be fused with great technical execution,” said CEO and Founder Sean Breen. “These awards recognize our efforts to create meaningful digital experiences that serve people as unique individuals.”

Helping AI/AN Youth Stay on the Right Path

Healing Paths App Supports AI/AN Adolescents in a Substance Use Disorder Aftercare Program

Awards received: 

  • w3 Awards - Health & Wellness Mobile Sites & Apps – Silver award
  • Davey Awards - Public Service Mobile Apps & Sites – Silver award 

Healing Lodge of the Seven Nations (HL7N), supported by a grant from Indian Health Services, wanted to develop an app that would improve outcomes and increase engagement for youth in their Substance Use Disorder (SUD) aftercare program. AgencyQ worked with HL7N to complete a robust discovery that allowed us to better understand the challenges faced by the youth, their families, and their treatment providers. Then we worked collaboratively with the treatment center to design an app that would help support youth in their recovery journey, giving them tools to manage their own recovery process. Additionally it gives staff better visibility into each individual’s engagement level, moods, successes, and challenges.

Helping New Nurse Practitioners and Physician Assistants Feel More Confident in the Exam Room

Pri-Med Primary Care Bootcamp for NPs and PAs 

Awards received:

Pri-Med developed a new curriculum for recent graduates to help advanced practice providers bridge the gap between the classroom and the exam room. AgencyQ collaborated with Pri-Med to design a bootcamp website with on-demand course videos, a library of downloadable resources, student-submitted questions, written and video answers, and more. Component-based design was used to build the site, and Pri-Med is already expanding to offer new bootcamps to more healthcare providers. AgencyQ has helped them build out the new additions and add shopping cart functionality.
