As a general overview of the project and with the help of some definitions presented in previous thesis work [1] " CardioFilo project aims to create an healthcare model for patients affected by atrial fibrillation, myocardial infarction and/or undergoing coronary angioplasty or other revascularisation procedures. Patients, in particular those who have been affected by infarction, in the phases following the acute event, are particularly fragile from a clinical point of view and they need medical assistance to prevent the risk of disease recurrence. [..] The name CardioFilo stems indeed from the desire to create a "direct line" ("filo" in Italian) between the cardiologist and the patient. This thesis work was carried out at Abinsula s.r.l., a Sardinian company that operates in the information technology sector. The main requirements of the application have been suggested by cardiologists of Ospedale San Giovanni Molinette who requested the implementation of the application.". After discharging the patient from the hospital, cardio-logical visits are limited to 3-6 month check-ups which may effect controlling habits like blood pressure, weight, or smoking cigarettes, and monitoring exam results, bleeding without help, and/or sleep monitoring. Lack of supervision may lead to some difficulties in managing radical changes of habits and following complex therapies, in addition to the possibility of experiencing a new cardiovascular adverse event. In this master thesis work, we will focus on the mobile application part of CardioFilo’s project which aims to provide an additional tool for the secondary prevention of cardiovascular diseases through the smartphone. We will discus who will use it, how to develop it, tools used, future improvements, and of course security precautions applied. In CardioFilo’s mobile application different tools and libraries were used. Android studio as a development tool, java as a programming language, Auth0 for authentication both user and API usage, and Okhhttp for server connection. It was implemented jointly with Abinsula’s mobile development team, and all the graphics were developed by Abinsula’s graphic team. Both teams are located in Sassari and the collaboration with them took place remotely with the help of Gitlab, a web-based DevOps platform that provides Git-repository, and hangouts meet for scheduled meetings. The mobile application is divided into multiple activities, some of them are read-only, uploaded by the doctor (i.e. personal data, medical reports, overview) which gives the patient the possibility to check his own situation. As for the other activities, they are for the patient to state his records to keep the cardiologist updated (i.e. record data, therapy).
