VIRTUES is a Virtual Integrated Reliable Transformative User-driven E-health System co-designed and co-developed by the Cardiac Arrhythmia Network of Canada (CANet): invistigators, clinicians, patients and external partners.
CANet was in need of building a robust platform for patients, supervisors and researchers. The aim of the platform was to improve patients’ engagement and communication with a wide spectrum of health care practitioners.
The project included mobile application development for patients on both iOS and Android platforms as well as creating a web-based application for researchers.
On project estimate stage it was agreed that the mobile application would be built using React Native framework – what allowed us to speed up the mobile application development providing native mobile applications for Android & IOS using the same code base.
For creating a researcher application ReactJS was selected as the most suitable technology.
After the choice of technologies was made *instinctools team collected all the needed data, listed carefully all the requirements, and started the process of development.
It took 2 months for *instinctools team to implement a 13 person-months project from idea to product.
IOS & Android application:
Researcher web application:
patient’s clinical data overview;
communication channels with patients;
integration with FHIR-compliant data storage SMILE.
mobile application allowed patients track their progress in communication with their supervisors;
a researcher got the ability of getting accurate results of patient’s progress using the web application;
implementation of this solution led to more productive cooperation between patients and researchers.
