Abstract

During the recent years mobile devices and especially smartphones have been embraced by a rapidly increasing number of people worldwide. In fact, this trend is expected to evolve even more in the years to come. One of the many fields of their utilization is the health domain, with numerous applications that record critical medical data and communicate with other applications in an effort to solve a single health issue each time. However, these applications demand time and effort for maintenance, both from developers and users. In this work we propose, design and implement a single solution which gives healthcare researchers and professionals the ability to create smartphone applications on the fly, regardless of the desired healthcare content that has to be recorded. The proposed approach applies efficient techniques for development and is based on dynamically receiving business and UI at the first time of application download.
