Mobile app that helps medical specialists and patients interact effectively
Our client was looking for a professional engineering team to build a highly functional mobile application which would simplify the interaction between medical institutions, patients, doctors and specialists. They wanted the app that would meet the needs of the potential users, provide an intuitive and friendly experience, allow for rapid communication and be equipped with push notifications.
We have developed Med.me, a cloud-based medical service and a mobile application for clinics that helps medical institutions keep track of patients, sends them results of the analyzes and studies, provides medical reports. It helps patients interact with doctors, make appointments, store medical data electronically and keep in touch with the specialists.
Med.me is useful not only for patients but also for doctors, as it provides a complex management kit to take care and keep track of patients. The clinic can download patient's medical data in their personal account manually or automatically, and all the data is stored in an encrypted form. The patient can upload the examinations made earlier or in another clinic in their personal account, and give access to this data to their physician for treatment consulting.
Med.me also allows the clinic or therapist and the patient to communicate directly. The patient can send a request to their doctor for a review of tests, correction of the treatment. The clinic can send a reminder, warning, offer or a personal message to the patient.
We have equipped Med.me application with a user-friendly interface. Med.me has a functional interface for the clinic administrator, the interface for the doctor, and the patient’s account. After the registration the user is directed to the main screen. The patient's private account stores the info about the examinations, appointments and treatments. We have also installed the User Profile and Text Search buttons, and have enabled the app to send notifications about new messages and comments to the users.
We have been working on Med.me project for half a year, having implemented all the features our client was looking for. The technology we used for developing the mobile application is Apache Cordova. We used Cordoba along with a lot of plugins which allowed us to develop a hybrid application suitable for different mobile OS, and Med.me works perfectly both on iOS and Android. Apache Cordova enabled us to build an application for mobile devices using CSS3 and HTML5 instead of relying on platform-specific APIs.
Moreover, we have enabled the app to send push notifications about new messages and comments to the users. The users can register in the application using the phone number, add their family members, and easily communicate with the specialists about medical issues. The application stores all the correspondence with clinics/doctors, which can be viewed even without the Internet connection. We have also implemented the in-app function of taking pictures, selecting them from the gallery and sending to the doctor.
Using Apache Cordova, we have created an application with a significant level of protection to save and store patients’ and physicians’ data. We have built a user-friendly interface with the understanding that people of different ages will use the application, so we have made it simple and understandable for any user.
The app fulfills our client’s business objectives, and stands out of the crowd with such features as push and SMS notifications, simple registration via SMS, Protected Data Transfer Protocol, the ability to communicate with several specialists simultaneously, data exchange system where a doctor and a patient can send each other PDF documents, photos, text files and audio, video recordings.
