Our client for this project is an up-and-coming European healthcare startup. Aiming to venture into the eHealth industry and increase its reach within the home country and eventually across the entire European Union, the client contacted us with a project idea. The project is intended to create a link between the patient and the healthcare provider, streamlining medical data exchange and helping patients monitor their health more efficiently.

Although the project did not have direct competitors in its home country yet, the eHealth market is growing at a rapid pace; so, the earlier a new solution emerges, the more likely it is to launch successfully. This is why, after many deliberations with the client, we decided to start with developing an MVP first and then scale it to a full-fledged solution.
The MVP in question is a mobile application for patients to store, share, and monitor their health data in a convenient way. Since the application was intended to be used by a wide range of users of different age groups and technical proficiency, it was important to make the product user-friendly and stable. Moreover, because eHealth products deal with the most sensitive patient data, making the application secure was also a priority. Finally, an integral part of the project was to make the product compliant with the necessary industry standards, including HL7, HIPAA, and GDPR.
For the MVP stage of the project, QArea was tasked with developing applications for iOS and Android platforms with a matching back-end solution for storing and processing data. To better accommodate the client’s business needs, we delivered the work in several iterations, with each iteration adding new functionality and improving the user experience offered by the application. The features in the final MVP version included:
- User registration
- User login using two-factor authentication
- Profile creation with fields like age, gender, physical parameters, and pre-existing conditions
- Adding dependents (elderly relatives or children) to the profile
- Uploading medical documents, test results, clinical charts, and more
- Transferring documents from email and messengers
- Sharing uploaded documents with healthcare providers
- QR code generation for emergency access to health records
- Setting up notifications to take medication or perform medical procedures
- Monitoring health and fitness parameters, including weight and activity levels
The choice of technologies for this project stemmed from the original product requirements. To make the application lightweight and scalable for future growth, we used Node.js for the back-end part. The front-end part of the applications for both Android and iOS was developed using React Native, which offers cross-platform compatibility and outstanding usability. We used Odoo as the product’s ERP system. Finally, we used AWS Step Functions to create a serverless project architecture that supports lambda functions for the ultimate security of the data stored in the application.
After completing the development part of the project, we used manual testing techniques to check the product’s functionality, usability, compatibility with different Android and iOS versions and screen sizes, correct localization, and other essential features.
The team working on the project consisted of:
- Business Analyst
- UI/UX Designer
- Solution Architect
- Front-end Developer
- Back-end Developer
- Manual QA Engineer
Throughout the project, we maintained close communication with the client’s team. Because of the basics of MVP development and the fast-paced nature of the eHealth market, the client sometimes requested last-minute changes and our team made sure to dynamically introduce the changes to the product.

The MVP was built in under two months, which was well within the deadline specified by the client. So far, it has received positive feedback both from the client and the early adopters (including clinics and individual healthcare providers who now plan to include the solution in their daily operations). The MVP included every feature discussed in the beginning of the project and can be successfully used for live demonstrations. We already have a vision and a detailed plan for developing the full-fledged solution and are ready to launch the next phase of the development project.
