Mobile Apps have brought quite a renaissance to the health care Ecosystem. The ubiquitous nature of mobile apps, the real-time monitoring of health indicators and reporting have become possible. It is easier to consult doctors in odd hours with the emergence of apps like Practo.
The surge in health care apps has brought value to not only doctors but also to the pharmacists as customers can place their orders directly and also to other medical technicians as healthcare apps are being used for diagnosis.
Here’s how healthcare businesses can take advantage of custom mobile healthcare apps.
1. Facilitate Instant Access
The advent of technology has made it possible for the patients to book a virtual appointment with the doctors. Though many people are sceptical about the virtual appointments in the beginning, once the doctor has mapped the health concern and the patient is under medication, virtual appointments can replace the routine follow-ups.
Moreover, the appointments can be booked from the comfort of home, thus, ditching long ques at the dispensaries and hospitals.
General Practitioners and for that matter other specialists are getting their custom mobile app developed so that it opens a forum for the doctors to stay connected and communicate their concerns without any hassle.
2. Easy Handling of Emergency Cases
Hospitals and healthcare providers that offer a dedicated app can efficiently handle emergency cases. The mobile application will notify the doctors about the emergency, and all the necessary information will be sent to the doctor’s device.
Hospitals which have their dedicated app can handle emergencies very efficiently. If a patient is facing medical emergency he can send an SOS to his/her consulting doctor through the app, and the doctors and the hospital staff can prepare for emergency procedures whilst the patient arrives at the hospital.
A custom mobile app can also help doctors or healthcare providers to speed up the documentation and other formalities.
3. Improved Coordination
A custom and dedicated mobile app can help the various functions or departments of the hospital to coordinate well with each other and share the correspondence (diagnosis reports/medical history) with reference to a patient on the go.
This improved cross-functional coordination allows the doctor to communicate prognosis to the patients and avoid procedural delays.
For compounder and nurses, the custom app will keep them posted on the patient’s ongoing treatment and notify them of due medications beforehand.
4. Easy Integration with Wearable Tech for Data Collection
The mobile app can be integrated with wearable tech like Fitbit to collect the data of health indicators like pulse rate, blood pressure etc.
The mobile app will collect daily updates about a patient such as how many hours of deep sleep he/she has had and how many steps has he/she walked and store save them in the central database which produces reports as willed.
5. Economic Viability
Unlike other industries, the role of tech start-ups in the healthcare industry is still evolving and there is still a lot of untapped potential.
With the emergence of new technologies like Blockchain and A.I and their convergence with the healthcare, more and more passionate and geeky entrepreneurs are joining the wagon.
Healthcare apps also help doctors and the hospitals alike in their branding endeavours and most importantly improve the user experience and bypass all conventional hurdles in the healthcare domain.
The medical professionals and the organizations alike need to count on an experienced app developing company which understands the intrinsic challenges posed by the nature of their profession and simplify the meticulous and routine process.
AppsChopper understands the criticality of medical treatment and has helped several hospitals design custom-built apps which have helped in establishing a never-dying interface between health consultants and patients.
