Creating a HIPAA-compliant mHealth app: 6 Vital facts you should know

Creating a HIPAA-compliant mHealth app: 6 Vital facts you should know

The advent and the explosive proliferation of Mobile devices, particularly Smartphones has been one of the most profound happenings in the history of Information Technology. An estimated 4.93 billion mobile phones are in use in 2018 and estimated to touch 5 billion mark by 2019 (Statista.com). The advent of Smartphones brought with it the thousands of mobile Apps. Many of them are simple ones that are built for individuals or small groups but some of them are meant for a wide range of user groups (social media) or across large companies (enterprise mobility solutions). One such area of application is Mobile Apps for healthcare professionals. These mHealth apps connect a wide range of user groups such as patients, medical staff, relatives, insurance company staff, and pharmacies to quote a few of them.  Much useful audio, video, image, and text information is exchanged between the user groups in due course of healthcare activities. However one major concern in the use of these apps is the potential non-compliance with HIPAA regulations; this is due to the many risks associated with Smartphones like data hacking, data theft, device theft and data loss. While the loss of data and device could be a concern for the hospital, the concerned staff and the third parties such as healthcare insurance companies, the data, and information falling in the wrong hands would mean a violation of HIPAA privacy rules. Since medical software in general and mHealth apps in particular exchange information especially concerning patient health, general, insurance and financial details, complying with the provisions in HIPAA regulations is a necessity. The violation default can range from...

Migrating to Angular 5: 5 reasons why & 3 simple ways to do it

Angular is a structural framework for dynamic web apps, specifically for single-page web applications. It is a JavaScript-based web application framework that binds the HTML with the JavaScript. AngularJS is the original version of Angular MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework created by Google; Angular, in general, provides the synchronization between the Model and the View in what is known as 2-way data binding. Angular, even in its initial form (used only with JavaScript), was and still is a popular framework for web application development. Angular 5 is an advanced version of the Angular framework that supports Typescript (a syntactical superset of JavaScript) and works with multiple platforms across various media such as web, desktop and mobile applications of various types and versions. Angular was created in the year 2016 by Google. It was one of the effective frameworks to create dynamic web applications. Subsequently, Angular 2 and Angular 4 were also released (3 was skipped), with more capabilities in the framework. Eventually, Angular 5 made its release in the month of November 2017. Significantly, the support of Typescript from Angular 2 onwards makes Angular framework different from its predecessor. Angular 2 supported Typescript 2.0, whereas Angular 4 supported Typescript versions 2.1 and 2.2. Although, Angular 4 is backward compatible with Typescript 2.0. Angular 5 is the latest version and is the subject of discussion in this white paper. Overall, the Angular framework is used by millions of developers, a fact that could make the availability of skilled developers possible. Sometimes the term Angular is used synonymously with any version of Angular. It would suffice to understand that AngularJS is the initial...
Choosing between Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud

Choosing between Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud

Shifting to Cloud Computing: Why Do It at All? Cloud storage has taken the world by storm and there are some significant reasons behind it. Everyone remembers the days when every bit of office work had to be documented in triplicate. Not only did it waste money, it also wasted a lot of time. This is where technology enabled a leap – and things started moving to the cloud. But even that had its shortcomings. The process was still redundant and the document shared online would not be automatically updated across its multiple copies whenever someone edited them. Some would argue that this was a good thing as it afforded a simple but effective form of security. However, with the advent of cloud computing solutions, none of these things are of  concern any longer, and here are a few reasons why: Increased Flexibility and Convenience: Create a document and upload it to a cloud platform. Anyone with unrestricted access can change it accordingly; can track the changes as well. There is a unique copy of the document that is reflected uniformly across all users. Reduced Management Issues: Cloud computation solutions are usually billed on the go. As a result, the budgetary and management issues can be minimized using the cloud. Scalability: It is extremely simple to scale up the magnitude of any operation when on a cloud platform. Through cloud application development, new resources are instantly available at a very cheap rate and the more people use it, the cheaper the services get. The Showdown – AWS vs Azure vs Google Cloud   Amazon AWS Amazon Web Services has...
Web Design Quirks: Are we headed towards a ‘Responsive’ world?

Web Design Quirks: Are we headed towards a ‘Responsive’ world?

Mobile-revolution has taken the world by storm. Everything that was once only desktop-friendly, can now be easily accessed on smartphones – all thanks to the existence of the responsive coding. If your favorite website runs just as smooth on your mobile phone or tablet than it does on your laptop, then it is designed to be immaculately responsive. A responsive website, as the theory states, ‘responds’ to the environment it is set in, eliminating any apparent malfunctioning that comes with the change in the handling device. It ensures an ultimate user-experience regardless of the interface- device, browser, screen size, resolution or orientation -they are using. But there’s a lot more to the responsive design that screen-size adjustments and resolutions. We’ll get to that, first let’s look through the idea behind this awesome design!   The ‘Tale’ behind Responsive Web Design (RWD)   ‘Responsive web design’ is a brainchild of Ethan Marcotte, a famous web designer. He was credited with the term following his publication ‘A List Apart’ in the year 2010. The article actively discussed how building separate sites for every device, browser, screen size and resolution was not a sustainable option. The same year, Ethan came up with a more fluid and adaptable option- a responsive option- that would fit every screen possible. Before the responsive evolution (even before the birth of iPhone), there were different development methodologies and concepts for every device. While it saved a lot of development costs, developers and users alike were faced with a number of limitations including hiked maintenance costs, decrease in SEO ranking owing to different devices, the list goes on....
