5 Factors to be taken care of before creating a medical application

Healthcare is one of the crucial areas where the application development is booming. Developing a health monitoring application elevates the standard of everyone’s day to day habits. Various applications have helped in achieving a healthier life and optimising the process in this area. In order to develop a health-specific app, one has to see that the following five factors are taken care.

  • Scalability
  • Localisation
  • Readability
  • Efficiency
  • Design



A medical application must never subject to trade-off when it comes to its scalability. It is the capability of a system, network, or process to handle a growing amount of work, or its potential to be enlarged to the corresponding growth. An analogous meaning is implied when the word is used in Economic terms, where an application feeds to its own growth bragging out its possibilities to work under swivel situations.When important updates are to hit, it should oblige to the extent of its use.


A medical application with built-in alerts should possess the power to work to a greater extent when updates regarding the geographical area, geo-fencing, POIs are brought in. Every moment counts when it comes to medicine and health. Localisation is ultimately essential to a medical app. By this process, it makes it easy for each and every user to efficiently utilise it.


The data output in all the medical applications has to be easily readable and inferable to the user.  Since it adds to a point of medical sciences, there are imminent outcomes regarding the use and the readability of an application. Consider a simple example of measuring blood sugar level, when the sugar level crosses the acceptable limit, the warning and notifications have to be sent. By this, even a person who has no knowledge on the same would be able to decipher something is off. The important part of the application is communication. Also, the UI must not be convoluted. Making a UI which is easy to use and intuitive will stand as a differentiating point for the application.


The efficiency of a medical application should be at brinks when it comes to alerts. Its programmatic infrastructure should be elegant and should use the far best minimal battery power and that adds an extra point to its market class. The utilities and accuracy of notifications should be near perfect. As the things at stake are high in this. Efficiency stands as a must needed a feature to sustain in the market.


The design and its UI approach should be of a coherent nature that brings true vibrant tint when a user interacts with it. Also, the layers of every element within the application should possess an all-around artistic approach. The texts should be visible and must flaunt a user-friendly touch to get the most out of the application from within.

Thus we have seen some of the most important factors that have to be covered before building a medical application or application for health care. At Mallow Technologies, we were able to build some great applications which help the life of various people. You can anytime contact us for creating a Healthcare application.
