A Brief Guide To Build The Next Generation Healthcare App

2 Nov 2016

As people are becoming more and more health conscious these days, they prefer using their smart phones and devices to keep a track of their health. There has been a significant rise in the number of mobile apps for the healthcare industry. Many healthcare providers are looking for ready-made or custom software solutions to keep the patients engaged and provide better treatment and care.

App Stores have several mobile apps serving different purposes such as engaging with the patients and their relatives, improved clinical decision making, and centralizing key information. Such apps centralize the key information and help doctors and care givers offer effective treatments to the patients.

Examples of HealthCare Apps

Patient Communication apps

Patients can communicate with the doctors with the help of such apps and obtain better diagnosis and treatment.

Clinical Treatment Guidelines

These apps help the patients and care givers get the latest guidelines.

Activity Tracking and Monitoring apps

Using sensors and connectivity options, users can monitor the movements and keep a track of the daily activity.

Apps for Reminders

Do you find it difficult to remember to consume your medicines? Apps can help you stick to the prescription regimen and you’ll never miss your dose.

Apps for Wearable

There are several wearable devices such as smart watches, fitness bands, activity tracking devices, and more for personal, professional, and patient use.

How to develop a new healthcare software?

Millions of healthcare devices are available in the market ranging from thermometers to MRI machines. A medical software can perform several functions and make patients and doctors’ lives easier. Medical software apps allow the devices to talk to other wireless devices and transmit data over the internet.

You’ve got an idea for healthcare app development in mind. What’s next?

The first and the foremost thing you should do is understand the target market. There are no set rules for a healthcare app. Hence, understand the target users and pre-define the set of rules before you start building an app for healthcare industry. For example: An iOS app built for physicians cannot have the same rules for patients. Ensure that you understand the target market and know what’s required from a compliance point of view.

Consult industry experts

There are several expert software developers who have years of experience in building apps for different platforms. Discuss your idea with the technology or industry experts and get advice. You can also talk to someone who has gone through the process before and gain suggestions.

Leverage User Centric Design

It is important that your app has a user friendly design and interface. It should deliver meaningful and useful information to the users. You should work with a creative and talented designer who pays special attention to the user experience.

Stay connected with the Developers

Whether you’re planning to develop a software or a mobile app, you should communicate with the programmers on a day to day basis and keep an eye on the progress of your project.

Test, test, and test again

Before submitting the app to the App store or launching the software, you need to check it thoroughly. The software development company you hire should have a team of skilled testers and QA professionals to test the app for any flaws and bugs in it. You should spend some time testing the software before it is made live.

The increasing importance of “intelligent” medical devices, software, and mobile applications ensure accurate and consistent data to help patients reduce the number of doctor or clinic visits. At the same time, medical apps can help doctors diagnose the medical conditions of a patient and assist them in providing better treatments.
