Mobile testing is no longer optional. With mobile usage accounting for more than half of online traffic, millions of users see the phone as the end-all, be-all of web connectivity. That includes online browsing, internet gaming and mobile applications, such as your software product.
Mobile apps present an incredible opportunity for healthcare providers to impact the lives of patients. Not only can patients securely access their health records but they can also directly interact with healthcare professionals remotely and by mobile device. In some instances, these mobile apps can be true lifesavers.
The user base is broad - spanning from hospitals and enterprises to healthcare professionals and patients providing ample room for modification and growth. Continuous innovation within this space can change the way people think about seeking diagnosis and treatment, accessing and managing their health records, and reporting emergency situations.
Given the new importance of these apps, it’s essential that rigorous mobile testing services are pursued. Why risk launching without thorough mobile app testing? Here are the top four reasons why extensive mobile app testing services are always a good idea for healthcare companies like yours.

And then there was uncertainty as to whether or not they were accurate. While the intent of creating this app was supposed to be positive – to enable simpler more streamlined reporting, faster – we know that’s not at all what happened. And, that’s not exactly how you want your new mobile app rollout and brand to be remembered.
