Creating a Web API using Mobile Services

In this section, we will create a Mobile Services-enabled Web API using Visual Studio 2013. For our fictitious scenario, we will create an Uber-like service but for medical emergencies. In the case of a medical emergency, users will have the option to send a request using their mobile device. Additionally, third-party applications and services can integrate with the Web API to display doctor availability. All requests sent to the Web API will follow the following process flow:

  1. The request will be persisted to a data store.
  2. An algorithm will find a doctor that matches the incoming request based on availability and proximity.
  3. Push Notifications will be sent to update the physician and patient.
