ASP.Net – Powering Mobile Apps With Responsive Design

Each and every modern business, irrespective of whether it is of small, medium or large scale, would require a dedicated portal that is specifically designed to promote the products or service that the business delivers. Today, for any company, it is highly imperative that it does not stick to any static site for promoting its business.

In the era of Internet based technology and social media, it is a ‘must’ for every company to reach out to the modern tech savvy clients who very much expect businesses to offer the latest as well as the best portfolio online, in every possible way over every possible device that is compatible to an internet connection. Therefore, the need of the hour is to provide information over phones, tablets, as well as other devices which have higher resolution than the screens of the conventional PCs and laptops.

Now the question is – how that can be done? Before we get into the technical nitty-gritty of responsive web design and ASP.NET, let us at first know what responsive web design actually is. It is actually a specific type or concept of web design that can help the site to fit into any type of device irrespective of its screen size. For example, a web site that is responsive can be displayed on a PC as well as an iPhone in spite of the fact that the screen of the iPhone is much smaller than that of the PC. Yet, none of the contents of the website will be lost in either of the versions.

In other words, responsive web design is a series of mechanisms that will allow a particular web page to adapt to the capabilities of a client which may include a human as well as an electronic consumer.

RWD techniques respond to:

– The capabilities of browsers (HTML5, plugins, native audio and video, CSS3)
– Device capabilities (geo-location, input methods, resolution)
– User Capabilities (vision and hearing)
– Viewport (media type, orientation, resolution, density)

When it comes to responding to these techniques, ASP.NET is the answer. When a user requests a web server to carry out any task, the command passes along the information regarding the client who is making that request. ASP.NET, by using that information can make certain determination regarding the nature or the type of device that is being used to make the request. This web application framework comes up with a unique httpRequest.Browser.IsMobileDevice property, which helps it to detect the device and take actions accordingly.

The browser object also comes up with certain other properties – MobileDeviceManufacturer or MobileDeviceModel that help in detecting critical information regarding that device. ASP. NET is designed to provide certain additional properties that help it to detect specific details regarding a particular device. However, it does not have any complete list of all the standard properties that a device comes up with. However, the .NET community has come up with certain extremely useful projects that negate this shortcoming and help a website to accurately pick up any mobile device.

One of the projects, known as Wireless Universal Resource File (WURFL), is actually a database of various mobile devices. The database includes the name of the device, information about the user agent, the height as well as the width of the device screen, whether it is a mobile or tab. If it is a mobile, the mobile browser type and version it uses and so on. The database is regularly updated at short intervals. This makes ASP. NET one of the best ways to design and develop websites that are responsive.

Responsive web design has been here for quite a few years. With its popularity increasing by leaps and bounds, the concept is continually gathering steam from every quarter. Hence, careful evaluation backed by a clinical approach with the help of platforms like ASP.NET will further sharpen responsiveness of the sites.

Will Mobile Technology End Healthcare Disparities?

The introduction of mobile technology has brought in revolutionary changes in every realm of our lives. How can health care be left behind? Indeed, this new technology resulted in various innovations that have decreased and in some cases, even ended a lot of disparities that have previously plagued this particular industry.

Statistics have categorically pinpointed that with the advent of mobile technology, access to various types of health care services have vastly improved. Besides, the cost involved has decreased substantially though there are still a lot of things that can be done to fully utilize this technology for bringing various health care disparities.

healthcare mobile app developmentIntroduction of this particular type of knowhow already has benefited the rural as well as underserved populations of various countries, especially the developing ones. Thanks to this knowledge, this particular sect of the population can now have access to urban specialists in case of a medical emergency at any time of day or night and this helps immensely in saving life. Moreover, this know how is further likely to reduce inefficiencies as well as errors in prescribing drugs and conduction of various medical tests.

Thus, medical practitioners get immense help, especially while remotely monitoring patients who are suffering from different types of chronic illnesses. The know-how also helps them to remind their patients of appointments and taking medicines as prescribed. Thus, it can well be stated at this juncture that with the introduction of mobile technology, people access to various technologies dramatically has eased, thereby narrowing down the so called “digital divide”, which has prevailed for so many years and in years to come, it is likely to be pushed to the brink of elimination.

As people’s access to the Internet along with web-enhanced tools has expanded, governments of countries all around the world are working in sync with various communities to enhance the use of health–related IT services for improvement of overall health.

Experts who are associated with research on how mobile technology can improve the patient outcome by ending the disparities, have expressed hope that though there are miles to go, still the start is already looking a lot promising.

Increased and a systematic use of this technology has also helped the policy makers in taking better and more stable decisions regarding health care – a fact that is already helping in a drastic reduction of cost related to medical treatment. An exhilarating amount of opportunities that this technology had brought in, is improving the patient experience by controlling the costs involved.

The technology has also helped to do a lot of elaborate research and data analysis, for answering basic questions, regarding health care, thereby reducing the disparities by a significant extent. It is also likely to further increase the use of various offshore resources in order to meet the specific needs of each and every individual. This, in turn, would eliminate any disparity whatsoever that exists mainly due to the location as well as access to the specialty medical service providers.

While this particular function is illustrated by the growing popularity of the telemedicine for increasing access to the medical practitioners from the remote areas, this also demonstrates the use of some other basic tools of communication like automated video, voice call center mechanisms. These tools ensure that a particular family has timely access to expert medical interpreters at a certain hospital or medical center at the earliest at the hour or need.

Besides, social networking that the modern mobile technology has come up with provides patients and their families all the relevant information that comes in handy when it comes to dealing with emergency situations.

So this can surely be said that the rural areas, which have fewer numbers of medical personnel per capita, are being benefitted immensely from modern mobile technology. This is because it allows patients from these rural areas, to have easy as well as quick access to doctors located in the urban areas, through various high tech means like video conferencing and other types of remote monitoring technologies. This has naturally resulted in the elimination of the disparities in the medical field to a large extent.
