FAMAP: A framework for developing m-health apps

The edge-cutting mobile technologies have allowed the expansion of m-health applications for both patients and doctors. However, the variety of technologies, platforms and general-purpose development frameworks make developers and researchers to spend a considerable amount of time in developing m-health apps from scratch. This papers presents an ongoing research project about the creation of a framework for assisting developers and researchers in creating m-health apps called FAMAP. This framework is presented for the first time in the current article. Among others, this framework contains components for respectively (1) collecting data, (2) visualizing data analytics, (3) automating the definition and management of questionnaires, (4) implementing agent-based decision support systems and (5) supporting multi-modal communication. To show the utility of the proposed framework, this article presents some well-known and in-progress m-health apps developed with this framework. This work is assessed by considering (a) the usage data to show the commitment of users in one of the apps, and (b) the downloads and ranking in stores of another of the apps.
