Android Online and Offline storage for Health Info System

I want to develop a Health Info System android app and use Firebase as the back-end solution. I am anticipating 400 patient records. However, I need these patient records even when there is no internet connectivity.

I am planning to create a local SQLite database that will sync with Firebase when internet is available. But, it seems to double the workload. My question is:

Can Firebase support this offline capability that I need?

Answer

Yes Firebase does have an offline capability. You can find the details in here
