After first work for a management web application, the nursing home of Montpellier (France) ordered me to develop an Android mobile application, order to earlier facilitate order entry and drugs receipt from the pharmacy.
For budget reasons, they prefers to wait for lower prices Android tablets and begin with a mobile application that will run on Samsung Galaxy S.
The mobile application must allow order entry by doctors but also the order receipt from the pharmacy by nurses.
The constraints are of course the screen size (4″), ease of use and security of data circulating among mobile terminals and the server of the nursing house.
I’ve started by creating the storyboard of the mobile application in Photoshop and then validated them with the nursing home.
Then create a new API on the web application in order to communicate with the mobile application.
Then I started developing the Android application (2.2) and tested it on a Google phone Nexus One.
Once the first stable version, I installed Samsung Galaxy S terminals and it is currently being tested at the nursing home.
