Today, most of the users prefer using a mobile application instead of migrating to desktop websites. So, it’s highly important to entertain those huge counts with the development of a mobile app.
According to one of the research, the health market is expected to grow at a rate of 33.5 percent between 2015 and 2020. So, this huge growth leap will invite the users onto the mobile application. The increase in telecom service, availability of numerous internet plans and migration of all the services onto mobile device has made it easy for everyone to maintain their health via smart gadgets and devices.
However, it’s not simple to develop a healthcare mobile application for your customers and entertain them at your level best. Instead, there are many factors that you need to consider ahead of mobile application development. Let’s check out.
Hardware Compatibility:This is an interesting fact to know that not all healthcare applications are made to run on multiple devices. Instead, they are made targeting a single mobile format. Like for e.g., enterprise mobility solutions are majorly coded to run on tablets, whereas patient specific applications are made to run on a smartphone that encompasses a ‘call your doctor’ options.
One more study revealed that in the year 2011, nearly 30 percent doctors used mobile applications which grow to nearly 83 percent today.
No More Device Data Storing:Due to security reasons, the data storage in mobile devices is prohibited. In case, multiple API requests are made to within clinic management system, the data will be stored in app server instead of your local device. And, because of this reason, the healthcare mobile developers always prefer the end to end encryption channel to transfer data.
Clean UI/UX:Offering an interface to healthcare mobile app is somewhat different from developing ordinary applications. In a healthcare application, you are restricted to deliver clean and easy shortcuts for the patients as well as clinics. All the essential shortcuts like daily medical reports, appointments, membership report, etc. on a single dashboard. The single its UI/UX will be, better it will be for your clients/patients to get your services.
App Testing is important:As you are going to take sensitive data from the patient; your application must be tested ahead of its launch. Your application will be capable of delivering health precautions and common remedies to your day to day health hazardous. Whether you execute manual testing or regression testing, it’s important to check each and every aspect of the application. Wrong interpretation of any information or patient history may lead to fatal output.
Device Security:Above all, it’s your mobile device that needs to be highly secure. One of the reports has claimed Android smartphones to be the least secure smartphones among other smartphone platforms. On that basis, it’s important to protect your smartphones from unnecessary malware as it may affect the mobile applications.
In future, if you plan to enhance your healthcare scope with the introduction of a mobile application, do consider the above-mentioned points to witness remarkable growth via healthcare mobile app.
