Healthcare app for seniors

Our client has developed an AI-based monitoring solution for senior health, collecting and analyzing data to generate comprehensive reports. They aimed to add new features and create mobile app versions for all platforms.

Project background

According to the US National poll on healthy aging, three in ten adults aged 50–80 (28%) say they are currently using at least one mobile health app. Overall, 34% of older adults said they use or have used apps for exercise, 22% for nutrition, 20% for weight loss, and 17% for sleep. 

Among those who have never used a health app, at least one in four has used apps to share health information with their health care providers. Seven in ten (or 70%) reported using them to keep track of their health, 39% to get information about health, and 9% to share or compete with family/friends. This poll shows that health apps for seniors are a huge and really important market. 

Our client was looking for a development team to create a solution that involves continuous personal health monitoring and predictive power of data analytics, real-time control of the patients’ location, and their movement for quick first aid.

Business needs

Our client has a popular AI Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) solution for elderly people. The healthcare app’s primary function is to monitor senior patients and alert staff if someone falls down, becomes dehydrated, or begins to display abnormal physiological patterns. 

 This initial solution has to have:

– Increased the quality of healthcare solutions for elderly people; 

– Improved patients’ safety; 

– Updated solution for all platforms and devices.

Our client was searching for a development team to create a cross-platform app that involves personal health monitoring and predictive data analytics, as well as real-time control of the patient’s location and movement for quick first aid in an emergency.

Product features

– Communication with caregivers. Enables information sharing between seniors and family or caregivers.

GPS location tracking. Enables family members to locate seniors outside the home.

– Notifications. Receiving and processing notifications from connected devices.

GPS location tracking. Enables family members to locate seniors outside the home.

Emergency call button. Allows seniors to request immediate assistance in case of emergencies.

Detailed graphs. Viewing seniors’ health data for the selected time.

Medication reminders. Helps seniors to stay on track via notifications​.

Activity tracking. Helps track daily activities: walking, exercises, etc. 

Solution

This healthcare app is built to help nurses in assisted livinfacilities (ALF) prioritize their time based on the needs of their individual patients

We successfully updated the initial life science solution for web and mobile users with support for all popular wearable devices.

Our solution aimed at ensuring enhanced security and safety of elderly people, so we added emergency call and GPS tracking functionality.

To ensure all information is transmitted correctly and quickly, we added data synchronization between the server and individual devices. 

Our technology stack

  • Dart
  • Flutter SDK
  • Firebase
  • Google Maps API
  • HTTP Dio
  • BLOC

Client values

  1. We improved the quality of an existing healthcare app for elderly people.
  2. We created 2 patient engagement healthcare apps for all platforms and devices.
  3. We boosted patients’ safety with the client’s Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) solution.

Employee testimonial

Testimonial_Ihor Taran
Ihor Taran Flutter Developer

Unlike average apps for youth or businesses we create, this project is way more complicated since senior patients and nurses are the core end-users. So it was very responsible and challenging to work on a solution that involves continuous personal health monitoring and predictive power of data analytics, real-time control of the patients’ location, and their movement for quick first aid. I do hope such helpful solutions for elderly patients will reach all countries soon. As a result, our team created two cross-platform apps with support for tablets, smartphones, and the web, and added data synchronization between the server and connected devices (watches) worn by patients.
