Building from Scratch: Cloud-based, Real-time monitoring application for a Healthcare Giant

Project Objective:

Develop a cloud-based, real-time monitoring application tailored for healthcare settings. The application’s core functionality is to track and evaluate the performance metrics of hospital staff and manage departmental budgets efficiently. The focus is on delivering a responsive and dynamic platform to enhance administrative oversight.

Client Challenges:

  • Absence of User Stories: The project initiation phase faced a significant challenge due to the non-availability of user stories, crucial for understanding end-user requirements and guiding the development process.
  • Lack of Real Data: A substantial obstacle was the unavailability of authentic data, necessary for validating the application’s functionalities and performance under real-world conditions.
  • Insufficient Data Points for Testing: The testing phase was hindered by inadequate data points, essential for comprehensive system testing and ensuring reliability across diverse scenarios.

Solution Implementation:

  • Technology Stack: Utilised the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express.js, React, Node.js) to build a scalable, efficient, and robust cloud-based solution.
  • Real-time Data Streaming: Integrated multiple streaming APIs to ensure seamless, real-time data flow, enabling instantaneous monitoring without latency.
  • Intuitive User Interface: Developed an intuitive front-end featuring interactive charts and tables for simplified management and enhanced user experience. This approach was key to ensuring the application’s ease of use for hospital administrators.

Outcome and Benefits:

  • Real-time Application: Successfully delivered a real-time application that provides instantaneous feedback on staff performance and budget allocations, thereby enabling proactive decision-making.
  • Well-Structured Code: Adhered to industry best practices in coding, resulting in a well-structured, maintainable, and scalable codebase.
  • Reliability: Ensured a bug-free application through rigorous testing and validation, leading to a reliable and efficient system suitable for critical healthcare environments.
