Best practices for medical app development go beyond standard UX

Mobile healthcare app development poses a set of challenges very different from mainstream apps. Not only is security an area that requires a considerable attention, compliance with regulatory standards is also absolutely crucial. Mithun Sridharan lists nine things app developers should pay close attention to during the development process:
1. Focus
2. Understand the healthcare system
3. Don’t rely on user expertise
4. On-board experts
5. Leverage design thinking principles
6. Embed the app in research
7. Get in the trenches
8. Test the prototype
9. Data and processes first; then logic
