Why Progressive Web Apps Should Be on Your Roadmap
// By Lisa D. Ellis //
What if you could make your website more engaging and easier to access for patients on the go — even when they don’t have access to the internet — while improving your electronic communication and reducing your costs? While this may sound like a tall order, progressive web apps (PWAs) can help you accomplish all of this and more, according to Michael Spinosa, CEO of Unleashed Technologies.
What Are PWAs?
Not familiar with how PWAs work? You’re probably already using them in your daily life without even knowing it. Think of the Lyft app you use to order rides on your smartphone. Or the way you check your bank balance with a swipe of your screen and transfer funds. Or how you follow the latest NFL scores while you wait in line at the grocery store. If a PWA is done right, you shouldn’t even have to stop to think that you are using one.
In the simplest terms, PWAs are apps housed on the internet that can be downloaded to the user’s mobile phone and allow him or her to get the convenience of a mobile app with the speed and ease of today’s web technologies.
Progressive web apps hold the power to transform the way healthcare organizations communicate with their target audiences, according to technology experts. Find out how this latest technological advancement combines the best of the web with the convenience of mobile apps, and saves money in the process.
