This page is intended to help Emory faculty, researchers, and physicians interested in implementing mobile apps in support of Emory's educational, research, and healthcare missions.
Emory University and Emory Healthcare have developed over twenty-five mobile apps since 2013. The number of apps and their complexity is expected to increase given the popularity of mobile apps and trends in higher education, research, healthcare, and information technology. Emory has implemented key policies, mobile app infrastructure, foundation components, and identified consulting resources to prepare to meet the increasing demand for mobile app development.
Mobile apps are more costly to develop, test, and maintain than many think. There are many reasons for this, but the basics are:

Useful estimates help in preparing budgets for grant proposals or allocating institutional funds for the project.
Emory has identified and vetted several consulting companies
