Common Issues With Developing Bluetooth Wearables (BLE)
Engineering Services For Healthcare
We help build regulatory compliant, cross-platform apps for digital health companies. Whether you are building a medical or lifestyle wearable, mental health app, or digital health platform, we have the domain expertise to help.
Developing regulatory-compliant, easy-to-use, and wireless device-integrated apps isn’t easy. Consumer demands and evolving platforms can make app maintenance even more complicated.
We develop solutions to solve the challenges faced when developing and integrating biosensor & wearable devices, including battery management, OTA device firmware updates (DFU), and device communication protocols including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and other IoT Protocols.
Protecting patient health data is a top priority. We ensure that patient device data and app data is protected on device, in transmission and at rest to provide peace of mind to both patients and companies. We have experience meeting or exceeding FDA & Health Canada regulations, including HIPAA and HITECH standards.
We build health cloud platforms using Azure and AWS. We also integrate with digital health data with the larger ecosystem, including Apple Health Kit, Google Fit, Samsung Health, health care providers (HCP), patient portals, and EHR/EMR systems.TechBlocks has experience meeting or exceeding FDA & Health Canada regulations, including HIPAA and HITECH standards.
Through our Design Thinking approach, we prioritize development by focusing on the end user’s interests and user experience. The design thinking approach is a set of principles and methods for solving complicated problems by prioritizing user interests. Design thinking helps solve a problem practically and creatively. It distills empirical knowledge from various fields – including architecture, engineering, and business – and adopts solution-focused methods for resolving issues.
We collaborate for research & observational studies to develop Product Strategy and MVP.
Based on the research, we define the scope of the project and intended roadmap
• Define Product Roadmap- From Concept to Commercialization (0-6-12 months roadmap)
• Initial Design Validation plan
• Define Device Connectivity goals
• Define Approach to data enablement
• Define Regulatory process
Through a series of brainstorming exercises, we develop potential solutions, aligning on the best version to solve our problem statement.
We focus heavily on the user experience, developing on screen and off screen solutions, process maps and flow charts to solve the users issue.
Once we understand the intended outcomes and UX, we begin building the solution.
As we develop the solution, frequent testing is required to ensure the user has a high quality experience. Testing for your digital health application can be broken up into four pieces.
It’s go time! We help launch your app and device on appropriate marketplaces.
Let us test your wearable or mobile application in our mobile device lab. Receive device-specific feedback, recommendations and useability results from our device lab with flagship North American and Asian-market smart phones, including Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and Samsung F Series devices, and Huawei Android-based devices.
At TechBlocks, we lead with innovative ideas. Across all our businesses, we share customer-centric industry thinking and transformative insights.
Trust our developers to help take your medical or lifestyle wearable, mental health app, or digital health platform from concept to commercialization.
