The mobile mind shift is in full swing. The Affordable Care and HITECH Acts, an aging population, and new mobile and wearable technologies are driving clinical and business changes across the healthcare industry.
According to Forrester, there are over 40,000 wellness, chronic condition management, and monitoring apps and the number is growing exponentially. Healthcare providers, medical device manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies, and biotech are all embracing the mobile mind shift.
Here are a few examples of how Kinvey has helped organizations like yours leverage the shift and be successful with mHealth apps today.
When medical device manufacturers release a new product, they face a challenge: it is increasingly difficult to get product information through to doctors with traditional detailing tactics.
Enter mobile eDetailing apps. One Kinvey customer was able to launch an app that:
Thanks to Kinvey’s mobile backend as a service (MBaaS) platform, the customer was also able to meet a one-month release deadline, and are now equipped with an enterprise-wide mobile backbone to power future mobile app initiatives.
Wearable health tracking devices have seen a surge in popularity of late. But all the data these devices generate are useless without context – in short, wearable wellness devices need a backend.
SunSprite, a wearable light tracking device and application, decided to use Kinvey from the very beginning. Benefits of using BaaS vs. taking the DIY approach included:
According to the Center for Disease Control, approximately 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Though there are no treatments to cure ASD, behavior and communication approaches have proven to be effective in mitigating the disorder.
SpecialNeedsWare has realized mobile’s unique opportunity to transform ASD therapy. Their suite of apps, powered by Kinvey, offer:
By leaving the many backend systems and integrations required for an app of this complexity to Kinvey, SpecialNeedsWare was able to focus on creating a five-star user experience and delivering the best apps for ASD therapy.
Mobile apps’ transformative potential are well suited for workflows in which human repetition and potential for error can be replaced by workflows performed by a connected mobile device. With an order management app powered by Kinvey, one admixture pharmacy was able to:
Building such a complex order enablement application requires sophisticated backend systems, which is where Kinvey’s value became most apparent. By standardizing backend integrations, and providing pre-built frontend components like caching and encryption, the app was delivered on time, under budget, and with five-star functionality.
