As you might know, rmdStudio Inc, the company behind the Anahita project provides mobile app development in Vancouver area. We use Anahita as the cloud back-end and API for our mobile apps, because it is an ideal platform for building knowledge sharing apps. Anahita provides a nice RESTful API and JSON format. Since all information is stored as nodes and graphs, Anahita connects the dots underneath and that results in more insightful and relevant search results.
One of the projects that we had been working on is the HealthConnection service which delivers information about medical practitioners and programs that are available in the greater Vancouver area. HealthConnection is delivered as an iOS App and website and it is custom developed for the Vancouver Coastal Health and North Shore Division of Family Practice. This service is intended to be used by medical practitioners, but public can also download the app for free.
In this project the social networking aspects of Anahita are only available to the staff who are maintaining the information on the system. Every entry is immediately available via the JSON feed which means all the iPhone apps will always show the most up-to-date information to the users. This is also a good example of locations graphs in Anahita which isn’t yet available as a part of default distribution.
We are looking forward to see the future releases of HealthConnection with a MobileFirst website and using the more advanced search, hashtag, and location graphs. This project has so much potential and it’s been so much fun to build.
Our special thanks to the HealthConnection team in Vancouver Coastal Health and North Shore Division of Family Practice for providing us this opportunity.
