FITBIT INTEGRATION WITH HEALTHCARE APP
Fitbit is a company which designs fitness products (tracker, wrist bands etc.) to track healthcare vitals, activity, sleep etc. For e.g. devices track the heart rate, glucose level, blood pressure, calories burnt, sleep quality and many more. The data collected is then updated wirelessly into the Fitbit application by the user whenever he/she wishes to. The user has the privilege to set goals, update them and see the progress on mobile and online dashboard.
The client for this project required the team at Mindfire to develop a solution so as to integrate their healthcare application with the Fitbit application in order to enable them to pull any patient’s Fitbit data at any point in time. This was supposed to act as a value addition for users of the client’s EHR/ Patient Portal by making it possible for them to measure their wellness scores using Fitbit.
In order to make it function, a patient has to login to the healthcare application and authorize the application to access his/her Fitbit data. Once authorized, the application would directly read or subscribe to read the corresponding patient’s data. On subscribing, the application gets an update from Fitbit whenever any data is logged / modified by the patient i.e. the data gets fetched into the application.
