Mobile applications are becoming an indispensable development for most people and smart phone users. The rate of mobile use and applications has gone so high such that there are many mobile applications which are in use, in the world. The healthcare sector is one area that has benefited from the use of mobile phones. There are many mobile applications which are being used and are utilized in the healthcare sector. This paper will focus on a mobile application that is used to improve the communication of body status of patients and doctors. The mobile application is used to get the body status of the patients and make suggestions on the improvements that should be made in order to have a better health. This report describes the features that have been integrated in the mobile application that is used to get the image of the user and show the health status of the user. The inputs that are taken by the mobile application include the height, weight, and the gender of the user. After getting the features, the mobile application will show the health status of the user. It is the hope of the developer that these results that are displayed by the mobile application will be required by the doctors, fitness professionals, and hospitals to advise patients on what is needed.
Description of the mobile application
The mobile application that will be developed will show the status of the body of the user and make suggestions regarding the body status. The inputs to the mobile application will be taken through keying in the height, weight, and the gender of the user. After getting the details, the mobile application will make suggestions of the health conditions and whether there is a need to have some exercises. With this application, it will be possible to get the right recommendations regarding the body exercises and body conditions.
Value of the mobile application
There are many benefits that are associated with the mobile application. One value that the mobile application will have is that of unified collaboration between the medical doctors, fitness centers, hospital, and patients. This is possible with the use of the mobile application to gain an understanding of the body of the patient. The image the mobile application gets will be used to assess the body fitness of the patient. This is possible with the use of the outputs from the mobile application to make suggestions on how to improve the body status of the patient.
Value to doctors
In most of the suggestions and diagnoses, the doctors make use of the body status to understand the patient and the fitness status. This is because it is possible to understand the status of the patient with the height, weight, and the gender. This is vital information because the doctor will be able to get what the body might be lacking or what the body has in excess. An example is for diabetic patients. In these instances, it will be possible to understand the status of the diabetic patient with this information of the weight and the height of the patient. The diagnoses will be programmed into the application and will make the suggestions basing on the knowledge that it has been fed. The doctors will no longer have to get the weight manually. This will save time for the doctors and for the patients. The data that is stored by the mobile application will be shared between the hospital, doctor’s clinics and the fitness centers.
Value to hospitals
The mobile application will also be beneficial to hospitals. This is because the data that will be stored by the mobile application will be stored in a common database. It will be possible to store the data and information in the hospital for future references. It will be possible to have shared information in the database and in the hospital. This is an important development for the hospital systems. The nurses who normally undertake these procedures will no longer have to do the procedures manually. This is because there will be an automated way in which this data will be available in the hospital. In addition, accuracy will be enhanced because the mobile application will be precise in the reading of the data inputs and make consistent results. The same results will be available and read from the mobile application. This means that the chances of making errors in these clinical procedures will be minimized. The mobile application will assist the nurses to have fewer manual tasks and minimized errors that come as a result of manual procedures (Roth, Dennis, & Wixom, 2013).
Value to fitness professionals
With the laxity of people to go to the fitness centers for workouts, this mobile application will be useful for this people. This is because the output from the mobile application will provide information for the users and will get suggestions from fitness professionals about the type of workout that they should adopt. With time, there will be instructions and knowledgebase integrated to the mobile application so that it will be possible to get these instructions automatically. This will be an improvement and will be beneficial to the users of the mobile application. The instructions from the fitness instructors will be automated so that the patients will be getting this information automatically. This is a prestigious development in the mobile applications because. This is because it will help patients get the results and make the necessary steps have issues that have been suggested to be workable. This will help to improve the health status of the individuals.
Improved user interface
The user interface will be of value to the users. This is because the users will be able to get suggestions on the risks that they are exposed to with the height and the weights that they have with the given gender. It will be beneficial to the users in that they will no longer have to go physically to the fitness centers to get the suggestions that have been made. This consultancy will be provided through the use of the mobile application. This service is available through the user interface. They will get the services and the professional guidance from the user interface that has been suggested. This is an important development for the user interface. As health services are now available online, there are many improvements that have been made with the use of mobile applications. There are developments that have been made with the use of information systems and technologies. These developments have helped improve the delivery of services to many people in this process. It is an prestigious development of the research process (Juristo, & Moreno, 2010).
When developing computer applications, one of the requirements is to ensure that there is rich and improved user interface. This is one of the requirements of mobile applications also. This is the reason why there is a need to ensure that there is better and improved user interface for the interface users. It should be a value that will be achieved when developing mobile applications. With the development of the mobile applications for the healthcare sector, this is one of the requirements that have been achieved. This is through the integration of the interactivity between the doctors, patients (users), and the hospital. This is one of the requirements of the mobile users. It is necessary to understand the interactivity of the different use cases. One of the requirements is to ensure that there is better management of the actors. The users of the mobile applications take place through the use of the actors. The user interface of the mobile application has been designed so that users are able to share information without compromising the security of the application.
The mobile application will also add value to the patients because of precision and enhanced accuracy from the results that are from the mobile application. This is because of the fact that there are improvements and developments for the results. Mobile applications, just like information systems, are known to be consistent with the results that they give. For this reason, the results that come from these mobile applications will help make better decisions in the entire process. This is one of the requirements for the improvement of clinical procedures. It is important to have tools that will improve some aspects of the clinical procedures. This is one of the tools that has been seen and will improve the clinical procedures. Research and analysis from the improved tools have been found to improve the development and enhancement of processes. Improvement of the input and the interpretation of these inputs will help improve the suggestions and the results that come with the development of the issues and procedures. This is one of the developments for the project. It is an important development for the project. With automated suggestions, it will be possible to have improved results from mobile application (Fichman, & Kemerer, 2012).
Improvement of data integrity
This is another value that the people of Australia will get with the use of the mobile application. This is because with the use of the mobile application to give improved data and suggestions, there will be better and improved way in which the data will be provided for in the entire process. With the importance of data integrity in medical procedures, it is one tool that will improve the achievement of data integrity. This is an important development that should be taken into consideration. One of the requirements is to ensure that the patient data will remain as confidential as much as possible. This will be made possible with the use of the data and the information that is provided. It is an important development because each patient will have their profiles which will not be shared by other users. There is also security at the application-level so that the access of the application will require the user to have password and username. The data are stored using a secure procedure during data synchronization. This is one of the requirements for the development and the enhancement of the project. As there is a need to ensure that there is a better management of the patient data, the users will be able to understand the requirements of the data and have a way in which the data will be accessed by the interested parties.
In the current world, data integrity and privacy is an issue of concern for most people. This is an issue of concern for the healthcare sector. This is the reason why there is the strife to automate most of the clinical procedures. This will improve the management of privacy for the data that are being shared. The mobile application will be an improvement for the whole process and procedures. This is because there is a need to ensure that there is better management of the issues and procedures. The mobile application that will be installed will offer the data integrity and privacy because it will be operated by the owner of the mobile application alone. This data will be made available with the discretion of the owner, in this case the patient, alone. With this capability, it will be possible to ensure that the security of the data will be improved and managed. This is one of the values of the mobile application that will be developed. Data integrity will be achieved.
Confidentiality is another value that should be managed and achieved with the management and handling of patient data in the healthcare sector. The mobile application will ensure that there is data confidentiality with the use of the mobile application. This is one of the developments for the mobile application that will be managed and achieved. This will improve the management of the data. It is an issue that should be managed and enhanced with the management of the data and applications (Singer, Lethbridge, Vinson, & Anquetil, 2010).
The mobile application will not only be beneficial to the user, but to the service providers. This is show in the way the doctors and nurses will be able to share information about the patients using the mobile application. This is because with the use of the mobile application, the users will be able to share data in the mobile application. It will also ensure that there is better management of the mobile application. This will mean that if a doctor works in a given hospital, there can share the data from that hospital to their private clinics. This is an crucial aspect because it will mean that the data will not be reproduced again in the doctor’s clinic. This is one of sources and possible points of inconsistent data in the process. This will be eradicated with the use of the mobile application. The data will be shared so that there will be no way on which the data will be reproduced again. This is one of the improvements that the procedures will be achieved with this process. It is an prestigious development. The sharing and collaboration of the data will improve the service delivery for both doctors and hospitals that are offering the service. For a long time, this has been an issue of concern for most providers of services. There is a need to ensure that there is better improvement of the collaboration effort between the doctor and patients.
