Growth in mobile device usage needs to be matched with mobile apps and mobile-friendly websites

Medical App Development Companies Need to Prioritize Mobile

In October of 2016, smartphones and tablets surpassed laptops and desktop computers in market share for internet access. But while this trend has continued to this day, healthcare organizations haven’t made the shift to focusing on mobile in the same way that other industries have (i.e. retail, transportation, finance). The healthcare market knows the facts, but have struggled to keep up due to these primary reasons:

1) Lack of internal or external developer resources proficient in mobile app and mobile responsive development.

2) High costs associated with healthcare mobile app development due to early-stage mobile app development libraries.

3) Persisting challenges to send/receive data into source systems (i.e. EHR, RCM, PM, RIS, LIS, HIE systems) due to the lack of APIs.

4) Healthcare IT companies have put little importance on mobile medical app development due to many of the same reasons. This is combined with there being very few medical app development companies supporting the custom development needs of health organizations.

Medical App Developer

Medical Web Experts has a team of highly experienced medical app developers, specializing in the latest JavaScript-based app development libraries (coding languages). New technologies now exist, such as REACT Native and Angular, that allow for the faster and lower cost development of mobile medical apps. Historically, a minimum team of 3 developers was required for any iOS and Android project, which would include an Android developer, another for iOS and another for API or SDK development. The same development can now be done with a single medical app developer proficient in JavaScript and with experience in healthcare mobile app development as these libraries allow developers to publish apps to both iOS and Android using a single codebase.

As nearly all web and mobile applications in healthcare require interfaces into source systems (ie. EHR, RCM, PM, RIS, LIS, HIE systems), Medical Web Experts has gained extensive proficiency in healthcare interface development technologies such as API, FHIR, HL7, CCD, and familiarity with many of healthcare’s most popular systems.
