This case study is all about, how we at Andolasoft has developed a full-featured native Android and iOS mobile app for
Dr. Satchin Panda health and research institute. The objective was, the mobile app must be in compliance with HIPPA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) which keeps all the research and their participant related data secure with the encrypted algorithm.
Everything cannot happen at once, we cannot fall asleep and wake up at the same time, nor sleep and do heavy-duty digesting. The body needs time to rest and repair, and so it works on a set clock
Dr. Satchin Panda, the circadian biologist at Salk Institute Requirement:
For Salk health research industry, a collection of different types of patience’s daily information is the main objective and according to that continue the research activity to get an understanding of society lifestyles.
Dr. Satchin Panda a full professor was very much interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of the biological clock. He is also very interested in how molecular understanding of circadian rhythms translates to the real world.
We had gone through Dr. Panda’s requirement first and then suggested his go for web and mobile application to reach your patients and participants.
With the huge growth and uses of Smartphone, developing mobile app can reach their target audience and easily collect data of anyone with their figure tips. We had also suggested going with HIPPA compliance to securely transmit health data from user app to the backend server.
HIPPA compliance is must be required for the hosting and mobile apps while developing apps for the Health-related research institutes. There should not be any weak link in the chain of communication to avoid serious penalties as per Hippa regulation. Hippa algorithm encrypts the user data to a separate identity and stores into a secure research database.
Collecting user or patient’s data securely through mobile apps was the main challenge for us. Implementing physical, network, and security process which encrypts the patience data like health information, treatment, food intake habits, activity logs and shows the encrypted data to authorized associates. All these had to be done in quick time with a secure backend and the web admin portal also.
We had developed the web application with ruby on rails platform and we used native Android and iOS platforms to developed mobile apps. We had used the ruby restful API’s for users to communicate with mobile apps and for data security, we had used HIPPA Compliance guidelines. We had completed the web and mobile apps with 16 weeks of timeframe and both mobile apps are getting placed on both the Apple App Store & Google Play Store successfully. Now MyCircadianClock helping the research institutes to get their participant information & data for their research purpose securely.
