Everyone has a medical mobile app these days, and if they don’t, they have an idea for one. Turning an idea into reality is easy in theory, and the mobile OS houses want you to believe this. But making an application that suits the users’ needs in the healthcare environment, or at least what they think they need, by providing meaningful, reliable information and functionality that withstands user ‘testing’ and allows scalability is a challenge. There is also the chance that someone has tried to implement a similar idea and failed (and hopefully they know why and will tell you), or worse, someone has tried and succeeded. The latter may require a better idea, better infrastructure, or better marketing to be successful if you are trying to sell something.
