Creating a Mobile Application based on a Model to Easily Locate Pharmacies in Urban Areas


Objectives: To develop a mobile application for the location of open pharmacies, in order to geolocalize and provide a fast and timely service in accordance with the politics in health of Ecuador. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Our proposal is to design a geolocation model for pharmacies in urban areas and test it with a prototype application that combines different technologies, such as HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and the Google Maps API. Findings: The proposed mobile web provides a 24/7 service for virtually any device with pre-installed GPS capacity. The application itself will help to impact the environment and to estimate the benefits according to their functionality and accessibility. Applications/Improvement: The resulting prototype includes interactivity features and automatic updates that other applications of similar characteristics, do not offer yet. Finally, it is important to mention that during the development of this model, various aspects related to the potential users and the architecture of the service was considered as well. Only to mention some: the type of mobile device that is being used, the operating system of the device, and the different software architectures available.
