CitiusTech assembled a team with expertise in iOS platform, medical device communication (RS-232, ANT+, USB 2.0) development and relevant healthcare skills (understanding of health data, clinical measures).

The team developed the solution which enabled the iOS devices to be used as a mobile health gateway for home health devices such as blood glucometer, blood pressure monitor, weighing scale etc.
CitiusTech was selected to build a mobile gateway to upload and manage biometric data using the iOS devices, send clinical alerts and enable physicians and care managers to view patient data
A rich interface was developed to let iOS Devices users view health data, including charting and trending of data.
