COVID-19 Testing Mobile App for Digital Health Company


Project Context



  • About Client

    Our client is a digital healthcare company with a diagnostic-as-a-service solution that enables FDA-authorized self-testing and real-time outbreak monitoring. Currently, the solution is fit for the US and a couple of Asian markets.

    The company has recently expanded its offering from solely catering to corporations to providing rapid individual home self-testing for people. Corporate clients use the DaaS solution for identifying and tracing COVID-19 outbursts and minimizing expenses caused by hospitalization, shutdowns, and absenteeism. As of now, the company operates web and mobile applications that run on AI technologies.

  • Business challenge

    Our client was pressed with time as the previous software development company needed more capacity to meet the MVP development deadlines, go live in time, and prove the concept on the market. Our engineers received a task to help the clients meet the deadlines, expand their product, transform their architecture from monolith to microservice-based structure, and begin their journey to reach HIPAA compliance.

  • Solution

    Binariks engineers have refactored and refined the code of the existing solution and helped the client transform the architecture by migrating from a monolith structure to a microservice-based one.

    Our engineers offered to rewrite the code from PHP to Elixir. This transition enabled faster and more flexible product scaling.

  • Implementation

    We began our collaboration with the client during an active development phase: the client was working with another tech partner and was planning to increase development capacity to meet the deadlines. During refactoring, our engineers offered to rewrite the platform from PHP to Elixir which was expected to significantly simplify the product scaling and allow the company to expand the user base.

    Then, we transformed the solution architecture by transitioning to a microservice-based structure and provided the following improvements:

    • Enabled corporate company managers to monitor the number and progress of people with positive COVID-19 test results
    • Implemented Kubernetes for seamless deployment to a larger extent
    • Improved authentication process with bio-authentification functions
    • Integrated a payment service functionality
    • Added various types of notifications and deep links for faster navigation
    • Implemented QR code reading function and intuitive UI flows
    • Added a vaccine card upload feature
    • Provided HIPAA consulting and prepared a list of requirements for app optimization according to the standard

Value Delivered

  • The mobile app has been successfully tested on the market and has been downloaded over 1 million times by now. From a technical point of view, our team delivered high-quality human readable code with a significantly lower number of bugs. In addition, thanks to the expertise and specific choices of technologies of our engineers, the client significantly reduced product maintenance costs.

    The company has gained a product that enables a more rapid and smooth engagement of a larger number of users. On top of that, our programmers expanded the app’s ability to integrate microservices that will generate new business opportunities in the short perspective. Our business analyst and solution architect helped the client commence the movement towards meeting the HIPAA standard which will as well open new collaboration opportunities.

    • Real-time tracking of the results
    • Informative dashboards for employee monitoring
    • Ability to maintain stable performance in high-load conditions
    • Well-organized software development process
