[en] Andaman7 is a mobile application for managing health records, developed by A7 Software company, based in Boncelles. This collaborative app has been designed to allow users to display, edit and exchange medical data, and by these means,to improve the communication between patients and doctors.

This master’s thesis has been conducted as part of the Andaman7 project. The goal consisted in developing mobile services for Andaman7, focusing on the Android version, and more generally, providing new features and solutions to the application.

The goal of the work was reached, as many solutions have been provided. Indeed, different tasks were performed for building or improving the GUI of the Android app: the presentation menu was modified in order to be integrated in a navigation drawer, the handmade toolbar was replaced by an Android built-in Toolbar, the screen rotations and the restoration of the application state were taken in charge, and a splash screen was added. Moreover, the GUI of the rules defining which parts of the patients’ records are shared with other users was re-designed, the languages and translations of the application were integrated. A notification system, based on Google Cloud Messaging, was also implemented. The confidentiality, integrity and origin of the medical data exchanged through the app server with other users was ensured, by integrating some cryptography mechanisms in the app. Finally, an analysis of two possible ways to perform secure backups of the users’ electronic health records was realized.

The present paper reports the choices and implementation details that have been made throughout the thesis, but also presents some alternatives and perspectives for enhancing the provided features in the future.
