The use of mobile and ubiquitous computing devices is advantageous for collecting and sharing patient data at the bedside or in hospital waiting areas. iPhone web applications - or web apps - combine the power of Internet based solutions with the simplicity of multi-touch and gesture technology, all one portable device. Since many data collection platforms have moved to an online paradigm (or are in the process of doing so), a web app is an ideal solution. In this work, we show the advantages of using a web app for patient data collection, as an imaging engine, and for patient feedback and survey systems. This can be achieved by taking advantage of simple functions available on the iPhone OS when using an online collection platform.
