Connecting Patients, Families, and Caregivers
Wellzie is a social networking app for patients, families, and caregivers. Connect to other patients and caregivers throughout the healthcare system that have similar diagnoses, illnesses, and experiences as yours while feeling safe knowing you have security and privacy.
The biggest challenge we faced was implementing text and video chat functionality. As with all of our projects, we also needed to find a way to handle data in the most secure way possible.
We used a framework called QuickBlox to implement the chat functionality. While the framework posed challenges of its own, it aided in delivering some of the functionality we needed out-of-the-box. Vigorous testing and auditing of our code assured us that we developed a secure solution for our client.
