This innovative solution aimed to improve patient outcomes by fostering connections and empowering individuals facing unique healthcare challenges.
The client, a healthcare enthusiast specializing in rare and chronic medical conditions, identified a need for a digital solution that could connect patients facing similar health challenges. Recognizing the power of peer support and the limitations of existing social media platforms, the client sought to develop a tailored app that could address these specific needs.
With a growing user-base and an app only available on iOS, the client faces the issue of expanding to Android and creating new functions/features in the to help address the growing need of their end-users. The customer’s main objective is to make the existing application more intuitive for its end-users allowing them to collaborate and exchange more information on how they deal with their conditions.
Decode Technologies is tasked to create the android application and maintain the existing iOS app. We created a single database for the 2 apps without scratching off the existing database from the iOS app. This is to easily manage the data that is stored within the database. From there, our team has expanded the apps features base on the instructions of the customer and allowed us to maintain and scale the 2 applications seamlessly.
To execute this plan, the client decided to utilize offshore IT services to access a pool of talented and experienced remote software developers. The team chose the Flutter development framework due to its cross-platform capabilities, which would allow the app to be deployed on both iOS and Android devices.
