Rapid Prototyping a Patient Record System

Martin is a cancer survivor, with a long career in the Software Industry and had seen first-hand the problems Doctors faced attempting to sift through and assimilate a full patient history.

Patient records comprise hundreds of biomarkers, years of blood tests, years of patient questionnaires, and gene marker analysis. Martin started with a database design and looked to use Bubble to prototype the UI.

Martin and I worked together to create Martin's vision in Bubble. The outcome was a lightning-fast UI, within a single panel that a Doctor can swiftly dig deep into charted historical values, or skim broadly to see outlier biomarkers.

A particular Bubble design decision was to create within Bubble a denormalised database view, reducing Bubble DB access, and creating a very clickable and swift user experience.

Mortgage Marketplace in Bubble

Adam had previously engaged a reputable Agency, using their template to create an MVP.

However what the agency delivered fell well short of a professional consumer application, and turned out to be very difficult to edit and manage.  

Adam has an expert background in Canadian mortgages and had conceived a unique take on how to improve the Mortgage shopping experience using SMS and Chat engagement between lenders and borrowers.

We collaboratively worked to re-design and re-think how the mortgage market application would work.

The lesson here is that a Bubble Template can be a good way to get you started with Bubble. You can quickly get something up and running, and this may help to form your ideas and test a concept. The quality of Agencies and templates is variable. You may be buying all the problems and constraints of an Agencies template and processes. When you need anything other that a "Me too" clone application, a Template might be more trouble than it is worth.

Adding Linkedin Signon leads to a Security and Application Review

Fiona had spent 3 months and around 10k on a Template and paid the Agency who made the template, to configure and adapt the Template for her requirements. All seemed well - it is a very pretty template.

She asked a question in the Bubble Forum about why an email address didn't show up in the template. What started as some mentoring help to understand a glitch in the template, evolved to fixing a broken onboarding process and adding Linkedin Logins with my plugin (https://linkedin-plugin-demo.bubbleapps.io/version-test)

Then we uncovered that Agency had "missed" some key requirements. There were live Users signing up to the application daily, (even in stealth pre-release) and there were No Privacy Rules

Without Privacy Rules your database is fully viewable over the internet!

- Privacy rules - these all had to be urgently retrofitted (over a weekend) to a database designed to create a pretty template, not secure data
- Numerous chained page redirections creating slow navigation and confusing flashed-up pages as the app redirected form page to page
- An untested Stripe setup


Fiona and I screen shared to sort out these fundamental problems and she is now live with a secure setup.

Full Enterprise SaaS application - multi tenant, multiple roles

I really enjoyed working with Lindsay. The focus of the call was to ensure I was getting the fundamentals of my database right. This was the first time we had spoken. As I explained my product, he was a great listener and understood the direction of my product. Then as we dove into the work, he was very clear and easy to follow along with as he helped stage the start of my database architecture. I look forward to working with him again soon!

Can I rate this 1,000 out of 5? I knew 2 minutes into the call this was the right decision. I've had bad luck with freelancers/fivrr etc so this was a welcome change. I have 2 pages of notes and Lindsay understood what I was trying to accomplish pretty much instantly. Absolutely will use this again.
