01 Jul Mobile Health App for a Healthcare Startup – Android & iOS
1 Jul 2020
The client is a healthcare startup in the USA helping patients connect with licensed, qualified therapists and mental care providers anytime.
The client analyzed the gap in the industry where patients lacked access to immediate, quality care in a timely manner. And in order to bridge the gap, the client conceptualized the idea of enabling timely mental health services and reaching the wider audience via technology running on one’s smartphones – a mobile health app. One of the major pain points in building the mobile health application was the affordability of the solution for everyone keeping the constraints in mind and as a startup, pain points had to be overcome. The client wanted to realize the idea into a full-fledged healthcare mobile app for both Android and iOS devices.
The client wanted the application to be developed to connect therapists and mental care providers with patients in real-time with a full-fledged video conferencing capability built-in. Additionally, the below capabilities were required in the apps:
- The app should allow the users to choose providers and schedule appointments based on their criteria
- Add therapists to favorites
- Provide accurate recommendations etc. right from inside the applications.
With the custom requirements for the development of the health app for android and iOS, the project involved the below challenges:
- Real-time scheduling and coordination
- Matching relevant healthcare providers with the patients who could be spread across different time zones
- End-to-end encryption to adhere to HIPAA regulation and hence the entire system needed to be architected in keeping data constraints in check
Star Knowledge as a recognized mobile app development company with highly skilled team of dedicated healthcare app developers, built the mobile health app on Android and iOS and hosted it on Microsoft Azure keeping in mind the HIPAA compliance and scalability. Due attention was paid to keeping the patient’s information anonymous.
The UI and UX were designed with a focus on ease of use and simple navigation to enable users to use the solution easily. Our mobile app developers also developed a provider marketplace to set their availability and area of focus that can help patients connect with the relevant care providers. The solution involved developing a complex scheduling algorithm and connecting via WebRTC to enable therapists to reach out to patients in a timely fashion. The calendar was enabled to sync with users’ device calendars for planning schedules for the day.
