Abstract (Summary)

Mobile medical applications are emerging as a significant part of the healthcare industry. Despite this popularity, mobile medical application development has proven difficult due to several factors. Moreover, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) 2013 publishing of strict regulatory requirements has further complicated development efforts.

Consequently, this thesis addresses the market need to design mobile medical applications in a manner that simultaneously ensures conformance to regulatory requirements and facilitates commercial success. Thoroughly analyzed as a solution is the integration of Agile tools, practices, and principles with the Waterfall model for software development to develop a quality system that delivers safe and effective mobile medical applications in a manner that promotes commercial success.

Specifically, this thesis provides an Agile augmented Waterfall model for mobile medical application development that ensures conformance with regulatory requirements and responds to unique market development needs, thus orienting the organization towards commercial success.
