Android on Keas

Adventures developing health care applications for Android with the Keas platform.

Keas is a platform (PaaS) for patient-facing health care applications. Developers are encouraged to look at for Keas' authoring environment.

Why develop healthcare apps on mobile? Because this is the ideal medium for journaling, for social networking, for inquiries about diet and exercise, for reminders about medications and health regiments. Mobile devices increasingly have accelerometers on board, making them capable of pedometer readings.

Why Droid? My hope is for these source code projects to act as samples and as a starting point for others that wish to enable healthcare mobile applications. The Android framework and tools are at a maturity level where this is now productive and where reasonably ambitious applications can be achieved.

One must start somewhere...
