Pre-planning the process of development before actually getting into it is an important activity for successful strategy based software development. Our developers are very well aware of this fact and hence, planned out a clear strategy to get on with the development process after thoroughly understanding the client’s needs. As the client’s requirement was to enhance their existing mobile application, our need was to initially understand their existing system in order to make enhancements to it. Hence, in the initial phase of the development, we made efforts to understand the functionalities and architecture of the existing mobile application of the client. Based on this analysis and the requirements of the client, we worked out an efficient way to implement the cloud based patient information management system within the timelines promised.
The mobile application is based on the basic Android application architecture as shown below.
The best part of this system was its cloud based implementation. Our developers with their expertise and skills were able to satisfy this need successfully. The latest technologies and tools were implemented to develop the patient information management system with advanced features like barcode scanning, inter doctor messaging and patient cross covering. Features of favoritizing and billing of sessions with ICD-10 codes were the topmost highlights of this Android application development project which our developers were able to achieve with their deep Android skills and knowledge.
