From innovative medical start-ups to healthcare providers, Ayoka has been engaged to provide mobile design and healthcare app development services. Companies and healthcare providers are incorporating mobile healthcare apps into their workflow for a broad range of services, from home healthcare to clinical research. Healthcare providers involved with research or other clinical studies to improve patient care are looking at healthcare mobile apps as their platform to collect and distribute information. This marks the convergence of devices and applications utilized by physicians with devices accessible by consumers, such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables. Patients and health-conscious consumers are utilizing these emerging web applications to monitor an array of aspects of their health, ultimately generating a significant amount of data.
Ayoka has developed custom healthcare mobile apps beyond data entry – to automatically collect additional information such as date / time stamps between user entries, geolocation information, or accelerometer data available in iPad devices or Android tablets. Capturing data for patient services, such as building easy to use apps that generate OASIS (Outcome and Assessment Information Set) forms, can be performed in an offline mode with a well designed mobile app.
Among consumers, mobile apps that monitor prescriptions, provide medical references, and track personal fitness rank the highest among consumers and provide examples for user interface design to that are more user-friendly than traditional EMR (Electronic Medical Record) enterprise systems. Downloadable applications have been widely received by consumers that provide device-specific applications to find general health and clinical information. Because mobile solutions allow data to be collected at a much faster rate, data can be collected with greater flexibility and more frequently during clinical trials. The mobile healthcare market and its devices, applications, and services are expected to grow by 25% annually, exceeding $8 billion by 2018.
Security, scalability and the ability to connect the mobile apps to other healthcare systems or centralized databases are top priorities for software developers who are building these new mobile applications. Advanced Encryption Standards (AES) of handling electronic data on the client and the server-side ensure that data is not lost or misused by physicians or malicious users. “Security by Design” is the notion that holds these principles of privacy and security from the beginning of the development and implementation processes.
The FDA and HIPPA have the responsibility of managing the safety and effectiveness of mobile medical devices and encourages the development of applications that cater to these needs to provide patients and healthcare professionals with the valuable health information that can be collected via smartphone, wearables, and tablets, which are already becoming rapidly adopted among consumers. On February 9th 2015, the FDA formalized their recommendations for Mobile Medical Applications, essentially limiting their regulation on health apps and medical software. With improving technology and limited regulation, it’s projected that by 2015, over 500 million of the world’s smartphone users will be utilizing a healthcare app on their devices.
