Abstract

Mobile computing has become one of the most dominant computer use paradigms and an essential part of the modern healthcare environment. As these applications become more sophisticated, a trend will inevitably develop towards providing comprehensive
support for healthcare practitioners.

According to industry estimates, by 2018, 50 percent of more than 3.4 billion smartphone and tablet users will have downloaded mobile healthcare apps. These users include healthcare professionals, consumers and patients. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is encouraging the development of mobile
medical applications that improve healthcare and provide consumers and healthcare professionals with valuable health information.

In this thesis, we propose a novel mobile healthcare platform for the visualization and management of patients’ medical reports, named MyHealthCloud. The research offers a new approach to store, retrieve and share the medical reports for patients and doctors. This new platform maximizes the benefits of mobile health technology by
providing the best possible way for healthcare professionals to share information with their patients efficiently and effectively.

This thesis empirically validates the usability of the proposed approach and clearly demonstrates its usefulness, providing details of the empirical study conducted with end-users in a real environment at various hospitals.
