Oculus Health Powered by Meteor a Modern JavaScript Platform


Meteor powers our chronic care management software. Meteor is an easy way to build real-time mobile and web applications. It allowed us to design and build an application that interfaces between patients and health care providers. The application had to be cross-platform with the ability to display real-time data.

Oculus health is available as a web application, Apple iOS, and Google Android application. The Meteor framework made it easier to build across multiple platforms. Meteor has built-in support for Cordova that allows the JavaScript to have access to device level APIs. Access to the API makes the application feel more like a native app.

An advantage of building on Meteor is "hot code push". It allows us our engineering team to push app updates directly to users. This means users always have the most updated version of the application. No longer are there users who are on an older version because they have not downloaded an update from the App Store or Google Play.

The Meteor framework also made it possible for us to pull electronic health records (EHR) from care providers and data from wearable healthcare devices like the Fitbit and Jawbone UP. Today Oculus Health integrates with over 290 connected health trackers and apps. It also can connect with over 900 modern health systems. 

The platform made it possible to create a secure cross-platform chronic care management software application. The speed of the development cycle allows us to iterate quickly and create new features for the app. We are proud of the application we have built with Meteor. Together we are building a platform to help patients living with chronic diseases. Patients have the ability to connect with their care providers through our remote care platform. Our technology allows collaboration between clinicians and caregivers.
