The age of the non-technical app developer may be dawning, as more and more developers create actual mobile application development platforms for Android and iOS devices.
Recently, Northern Devon Healthcare Trust adopted a policy and a platform that allowed non-technical employees to design their own mobile apps. The software is from British software provider NDL. The company’s awiMX toolkit is designed to allow non-technical staff to create mobile applications using a drag-and-drop interface.
NHS did this in response to a request from the government, and instead of having to hire more people or force their current staff to do unnecessary work, they settled on the awiMX platform.
“From April this year, NHS trusts will be obliged to complete the Community Information Data Set (CIDS), which involves collecting 150 different data points on patients, including demographics, care records and referrals.”
